Role: Money Matters Adviser

Experience: Studying social welfare, law, policy and advice at Staffordshire University. I have now completed CMA Generalist Debt Advice training to Level 2.

Quote: Foodbanks are not just about offering one particular service. It’s also about supporting individuals in any way possible. This is why I enjoy volunteering as Money Matters is a free service that helps with not just financial problems but also how to apply in claiming benefits and also for available trust funds. This reassures the person and makes my role a worthy and satisfying cause.
