Easy Fundraising For You and Your Business

DHA -For help and advice call 01332 287 850Direct Help & Advice (DHA) is an independent Charity that provides specialist advice, advocacy and representation to vulnerable people in Derby, Derbyshire and surrounding Counties. We help people to resolve complex housing and welfare benefit issues preventing homelessness and family crisis. We also provide Employability Skills Training at our Ilkeston Office, for people who need basic IT training to get a job.

Most of this work is funded by the Legal Aid system, however, we have a queue of people outside our doors every day; who don’t qualify for Legal Aid; and have no other way of getting Legal help.

We are concerned about the impact of the new Welfare Reforms Act and Legal Aid Reforms on local families; following the biggest changes to Welfare Benefits and the Social Housing sector for 60 years. Many more people will need specialist advice services to manage their finances and remain in their homes. The average cost of providing this service is £200 for each Legal Case we take on, but we need to find external funding for each Case.  

There is a ‘Cost Free’ way you can help us, which is similar to other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead. It's as simple as that!

You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 1.5%, M&S 6%. Please follow this link for us and register your cause as ‘Direct Help & Advice’ then shop as normal, raising money for us! http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/how-it-works/

PRIZE! We have a voucher for a FREE Paintball Day for 10 people, for the business who raises the most money for us by July 31st 2013 using Easyfundraising!
