In order to be mentally and physically well, it’s essential that we get the support we need for our finances, housing, employment, and education when we need it. We understand everyone’s situation is unique, so this is not an exhaustive list; these are the most common types of support provided:
Mental Health and Wellbeing Support – From light touch conversations about emotional good health to connecting you with our on-site psychology team, and with Recovery Space Support as well as supporting access to Croydon Talking Therapies, and providing coping skills, advice and guidance.
Housing – Helping you understand and navigate the housing application, repairs, and home swap systems. Signposting to specific housing support organisations.
Finance – Connecting you with benefit support such as Mind in Croydon’s Welfare Benefits Advice Team or our DWP drop in and signposting to debt advice services and Employment Support.
Domestic Abuse – Connecting with relevant support for anyone experiencing any form of domestic abuse, financial, emotional, physical, sexual or coercive behavior.
Form Guidance – Helping you manage the anxiety of filling out forms, we will break down each form into manageable chunks, clearly explain what is needed for each form and provide check ins to support you with your applications. Common forms we help understand are PIP applications and renewal, Carers Allowance, Blue Badge and Council Tax support.
We also hold one off and a rolling program of workshops, and groups such as social groups with a wellbeing focus. Please click here to see what’s on each month.
