We are very grateful to the individuals, trusts and organisations that have funded our essential service for the last 25 years. In 2022 we had a cashflow scare because of a gap in funding.
We have received pledges of partial funding until 2025 and your donation is vital to our resilience.
Every donation has a very high impact
For every £1 spent on running the advice centre, we help local people receive over £10 in welfare benefits they are entitled to. (And welfare benefits are not the only area of our work).
Please give generously today:
- £300 will cover the running costs for one day (we open 4 days per week)
- £5,000 will cover the running costs for one month
GIVE to Filwood Hope by cheque, CAF, bank card (PayPal Giving Fund or GiveAsYouLive) or by bank transfer.
BOOST your donation with Gift-Aid (if you’re a UK tax payer) – gift-aid form
How we use money
Running an advice centre is a very effective way of helping people: we typically have 4,500 visits per year. As we have been open for 25 years, people know where to find us (the main way people find out about us is a recommendation from friends/family).
FUNDRAISE with an event, a Facebook fundraiser, a sponsored challenge (e.g. GoFundMe), sell on eBay for Charity, or host a tea party.

Give as a church:
Your gift allows even more of our time to be spent with clients or researching solutions on their behalf, instead of filling in grant applications.
