  • over 65
  • on a low income

Our South London Healthy Homes programme provides support packages to those most in need. A referral to the scheme provides people with a free winter home, financial and health support package including: 

  • Energy efficiency advice
  • Install energy saving devices
  • Support home improvement grant applications
  • offer impartial advice that will help you heat your home for less
  • connect you to other sources of help

Camden Wish Plus
  • Camden
  • Budgeting, Grants and goods, Energy and utility support

The WISH+ referral hub is a way for Camden residents to get access to a range of Warmth, Income, Safety and Health services. You don’t need to know all the services available through WISH+ to refer, just that the individual you are referring might need some support to improve their health and wellbeing. WISH+ does not provide any services itself, but puts people in touch with the services they need after discussing these with them first. Some services do have eligibility criteria so are not available to all. You do need the consent of the resident to make a referral to WISH+ so that we can call them to discuss their needs.

*Must be completed by a Housing Officer*

The Money House (TMH) helps young people in, or about to move into housing, manage their money and remain independent.

 

Participants gain practical financial and digital skills to pay their rent, bills and living costs whilst making informed choices about their future. Attendees can receive a Level 1 award in Money Management from ABC’s Entry Into Work Employability Module.

 

Sessions take place in a fully kitted out flat, not a classroom. It looks and feels like a typical flat that young people would aspire to live in when they get their own tenancy. Our experts help them become more confident about money and living on their own by providing real-life skills in a unique setting that brings financial education to life and helps prevent homelessness.

 

At TMH there are no lectures. Interactive games and activities involve young people in every aspect of their learning. Our Education Officers are young, trained, tested and enthusiastic, and it shows in the feedback we get from all the young people who attend.
