Role

Connect Community Trust employment support and income advice service are an integral part of the organisation and our support to local people within Greater Easterhouse and surrounding areas.

A key priority for Connect is to provide support to people that are facing barriers or issues relating to money and financial matters. Growing indebtedness and the effects of Covid has meant increased demand for money and benefits advice services across our job clubs and community services.

As a result of this growing demand Connect has worked with local housing providers to provide direct money and benefits advice over the past 3 years and we are now looking to expand the service. Giving people the knowledge, tools and confidence to be able to resolve matters themselves or provide a gateway to specialist advice or other complementary services when further help is required.

Objectives of this income advice service:

  • To work towards the alleviation of hardship and disadvantage by providing information, advice and assistance on money, benefits and related issues i.e fuel poverty
  • To promote the financial wellbeing of residents
  • To contribute to the development of strategies and interventions to reduce financial exclusion
