A great year for the Rainy Day Trust

A great year for the Rainy Day Trust

2016 proved to be a year of significant change for the Rainy Day Trust. Not only did it move casework provider and become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, but it also launched a whole series of new programmes, specifically designed to tackle the impact of low income in the industry. 

The Trust says that it has, and always will be, a grant maker — providing financial assistance where and when it is needed and in 2016 the number of people that were helped grew by nearly 20%. More money to more people!

But offering financial help is just one part of what the charity does now. It now offers free housing advice in partnership with Shelter to cover everything from dealing with difficult landlords, to what to do about mortgage arrears or how to seek help with a boundary issue.

There is an E-Learning package designed to help people re-train or upskill. It supports apprentices to give them a better chance of passing their course and securing a full-time job. Then there’s the winter fuel pack which will service boilers, and pay towards fuel bills ready for winter.

Put all of this lot together and what you have is a comprehensive package of support that helps people deal with the problems that they can’t bring to work. For those that the charity help, there’s just one number to call — 0203 192 0486 — simple.
