Here 2 Help free events this month


Following the success of its Here2Help events in December, the Solihull Financial Inclusion Partnership, led by Solihull Council has organised two more free drop-in events this month in Fordbridge and Solihull town centre.

Alongside the Here2Help web pages, advice booklets and helplines, the events are designed to help make sure that Solihull residents continue to get any help they’re entitled to.

Both events will have staff from a range of organisations involved in the Here2Help campaign, offering free advice and support on a range of topics, including energy and fuel, finance, work, housing and mental health.

The events take place on:

  • Wednesday 22 March, 10am – 2pm at The Junction, Chapelhouse Road, Fordbridge, B37 5HA
  • Friday 24 March, 10am – 2pm, The Core, Homer Road, Touchwood, B91 3RG


Councillor Karen Grinsell, Deputy Leader for Solihull Council and Cabinet Member with responsibility for Partnerships and Wellbeing, said: “We are working with national and local organisations like Citizens Advice, the Department for Work and Pensions and Act on Energy to make sure that residents can access the support and help that they need and that they are entitled to.

“All the information is held in one place on the Council’s Here2Help web pages, however we want to ensure that people can access support in ways that work for them. In addition to the web pages, we have produced booklets and have a helpline. We have also arranged two more events for people who would prefer to talk face-to-face.

“If you’re struggling at all, please don’t go it alone, we are here to help. Visit our website or come and talk to us at one of our events and get some advice and support.”
