The Birmingham Settlement works with others to improve the quality of life for people who are affected by poverty, unemployment, social isolation, and language or cultural barriers. 

   
 

The Newtown Advice Centre specialises on money advice enquiries.

'Our Money Advice Centre in Newtown is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. You don’t need an appointment to come and see us, but we are only able to see a limited number of people each day on a first-come first-served basis so please come down at 9am to be allocated a slot for the same day.

If you have never visited Birmingham Settlement before, Monday is designated specifically for new clients so you are more likely to be seen. Tuesdays and Thursdays are open to everybody.

Everyone who becomes a client of Birmingham Settlement’s Money Advice service, is given a welfare benefits check and budgeting assistance. We also work alongside individuals to draw up a list of income and expenditure in order to establish what they can and can’t afford to pay. We will then provide debt advice to help clients prioritise the debts, deal with the most important ones first (like rent, council tax or gas), help work out other repayments (like store cards and catalogue debts) and negotiate with creditors.

If a client has to go to court, we’ll normally be able to represent them.

If part of the debt problem is due to not being paid the correct benefits, then we’ll help to resolve this too.

We are also able to provide referrals to other specialist services if clients have additional needs that they need support with.'
