Can I Get Help?

Most people can get some kind of help from Pennywise, whether it’s through a one to one appointment with one of our mentors or by attending our money saving workshops. Take a look at our case studies to see what we’ve done to support our clients previously.

Our mentors see clients aged 26 and over for individual appointments in which they can help you to:

  •     set a household budget you can stick to.
  •     check you’re getting all the money you’re entitled to from benefits and grants.
  •     get more from your money when  shopping or choosing suppliers for your energy, mobile or broadband.

We prefer to see clients in either our central office, or one of the local venues we use around the city. We will consider home appointments for people with barriers to travel.

How do I refer?

We accept referrals from professionals who feel their clients need support with budgeting, and also from members of the public who would like our help.

Referring to Pennywise is easy, just fill in our online referral and we’ll call you back to arrange an appointment, or get in touch if you’ve got any questions:
