NHS Key Worker Advice Project
Working alongside the NHS Housing Hub, which helps internationally recruited NHS employees in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight access housing. The project provides advice to help these new colleagues settle in local communities.
In October 2022, the NHS’s Employee Health & Wellbeing Programme for the region launched a cost of living helpline available to all NHS and primary care employees. Thanks to a partnership with the Programme, we now offer specialised advice and support to any employees who are referred to us by the helpline.
The Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation is an independent charitable trust established to inspire local giving for local need.
The Community Foundation works both with donors who want to give something back to their local communities and voluntary groups providing vital services for local people where often a few hundred pounds can make a real difference to their lives. Companies, individuals, families and trusts can establish a fund with the Foundation, which supports a growing programme of grant-making to communities.
HIWCF is part of a national network of 46 Community Foundations, one of the fastest growing philanthropic movements in the UK.
Where to go
We help people find a way forward. We can all face problems that seem complicated or intimidating. At local Citizens Advice offices throughout Hampshire, we believe no one should have to face these problems without good quality, independent advice.
We are here to give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward, whoever they are, and whatever their problem.
We give advice to millions of people
We’re part of a network of independent charities that offers confidential advice online, over the phone, and in person, for free.
When we say we’re for everyone, we mean it. People rely on us because we’re independent and totally impartial.
We speak up for our clients. No one else sees so many people with so many different kinds of problems, and that gives us a unique insight into the challenges people are facing today.
With the right evidence, we can show big organisations – from companies right up to the government – how they can make things better for people.
We see how problems can be linked. By helping people with the underlying cause of their problems and making sure they don’t get worse, we save the government and public services hundreds of millions of pounds every year.
