Homelessness prevention

Homelessness can be the result of many different issues but we believe that no-one in Newham should be living on the streets. We feel that by intervening early enough, homelessness can and will become a thing of the past.

With the help of the Department for Work and Pensions we are aiming to help those who have become vulnerable to homelessness before they reach a crisis point. If you are struggling to pay housing costs it is important that you avoid taking on high street loans with high interest rates that you will not be able to pay back.

Instead, you can speak to a specialist at Our Newham Money who will help you manage your finances, including any debts and who will support you through any court hearings as well as help you negotiate payment arrangements with landlords.

You can also apply for an Emergency Loan through us with a 0% interest rate designed to help you come up with a rental deposit, allowing you to secure housing that you are capable of paying for.

Education can be key to stopping debts from taking control of your life and having the ability to see which of your debts and bills are a high priority and which are not can be the first step towards recovering your financial stability. Our experts will go through your your income and expenses and advise on the best course of action for you to take.
