• Cash First Referral Leaflets

    Find locally available advice and cash first support options

  • The cash first referral leaflets listed below are co-designed as straightforward resources for people facing financial crisis, and anyone supporting them, to quickly see available advice and cash first support options and which agencies are best placed to help.

     

    IFAN is collaborating with key stakeholders in various local authorities across the UK to co-develop further leaflets and to share these cash first resources as widely as possible.

     

    The aim of this project to reduce the need for emergency food aid by helping people access any existing financial entitlements and advice on income maximisation as a cash first response to food insecurity.
