The purpose of the site is to provide information and links to information both for advisers and clients. In addition, advisers and clients are invited to email questions which we will endeavour to answer or provide guidance on.

SAfE offers free drop-in outreach advice to all members of the local community. We aim to help clients resolve any issues, including benefits, debt, housing and employment. Our advisers are experienced and fully trained in all aspects of advice work. We specialise in assisting clients to complete complex benefit forms – a service not generally available locally. We are also FCA authorised to deliver comprehensive debt advice, working with clients until the successful resolution of their issues.
