The Money Matters Advisers at Magna Housing Association provide advice to help our tenants to maximise their income, claim benefits to which they are entitled, tax credit and pension credit entitlements, help with benefit appeals, suggest/advise on budgeting skills, advise to help reduce utility costs, insurance and household costs, open bank accounts and give basic debt advice. We also work in partnership with local food banks to provide food parcels to support tenants in emergency circumstances, and refer/signpost tenants to external agencies like Local Welfare Support, Social Services, community Mental Health team and to other agencies for further debt advice or emotional and physical support.
