Resilience is a ground-breaking project for Coventry foodbank (Trussell Trust), working in partnership with Coventry Citizens Advice. The project aims to respond to the projected increase in footfall into the foodbanks due to the arrival of Universal Credit in Coventry.
Clients who are affected or soon to be affected by Universal Credit can get support and advice from Resilience. The project aims to build client confidence in the following areas:
1. Making monthly payments
4. Staying informed
5. Getting online
The projects ambition is to improve the health and wellbeing of clients by giving clients the skills they need to manage their Universal Credit claim successfully.
The objectives of the project are to:
Prevent repeated crisis;
Effect policy change;
Empower volunteers; and
Share best practice.
