Lisa's tax-credit nightmare:

Understanding Tax Credits is difficult enough for advice workers, but it’s even harder for those receiving tax credits. Someone who accessed our support service fell foul of HMRC when they claimed she had been overpaid in both 2016–17 and in 2017–18. For 2016–17 they wanted over £8000 repaying, and for the current tax year over £1000. Her partner is disabled and unable to work, and so they are reliant on benefits.

What People Are Saying About Us

It’s always amazing to hear people’s opinions of us, and how we’ve affected their lives. Here are a few comments that have been made to us in 2018:

I have attended a few of the Freedom Project’s services/events and I can’t praise them enough they put on amazing events that families who can’t afford treats for their kids can attend and it makes such a difference as these children can go back to school and tell friends about things they have done and how much fun they have had rather than having to say they haven’t been anywhere because their parents couldn’t afford it, I really think you are so very valuable to the community and I love seeing all the smiles on everyone’s faces when I come along to any of your events. A huge thank you to all involved.
