We urgently need your support

At Paperweight, in ‘normal’ times, we were dealing with over a thousand cases a year, from one small office and with one paid staff member.

The coronavirus has added a horrible new element, not only as a potentially deadly health hazard, but also for its devastating effect on people’s finances. As a result, our workload has hugely increased, while at the same time compromising our ability to fundraise.

We urgently need to raise £125,000, so we can give people the vital help they need right now. You can support the Emergency Appeal here.

We know that COVID-19 will continue to impact on all our lives in unprecedented ways. We want to reassure you that our priority remains the welfare of our clients and our colleagues.

Our free services are available for all those needing guidance on legal, financial and welfare issues. In these very testing times, we are particularly aware that people will turn to us for:

- Advocacy with the DWP
- Assistance on debt-related issues
- Regular updates on the support available from banks, building societies and government agencies
