Citizens Advice South Warwickshire – Reach Out At Home Service

The Reach Out At Home Service (ROAH) supports people in crisis situations and provides holistic advice on a variety of issues – a very valuable service for people at this time of acute difficulty.

75% of people helped through ROAH have a disability or long term health condition and this is reflected by high numbers requiring help with Personal Independence Payments and Employment Support Allowance. The team also applies for hardship grant funding for people who urgently need items such as clothing, white goods and emergency food parcels.

They provide a range of advice with the primary issues being; benefits & tax credits, financial services & capability work, health and community care and debt.  People often present with multiple complex needs.

The Reach Out At Home Service has been supported by grants totalling £21,800 from the King Henry VIII Endowed Trust, Warwick.
