PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED JANUARY 2021 BRIEFING PAPER & REFERRAL FORM FOR MORE INFORMATION
SHAX provides essential furniture and household items to local people in crisis through homelessness and/or poverty, especially those moving from emergency accommodation to a new permanent tenancy. We do this through a referral process from Support Agencies. If you are a support worker and would like to know more about our services, please download our January 2021 Agency Briefing Note and August 2020 Referral Form from this page. If you’re in personal crisis, please call SHAX on 01387 245358 and we’ll try to help.
We offer two crisis support services:
Emergency Starter Packs – which clients receive to enable them move into their new tenancy immediately. This can include crockery, cutlery, personal hygiene items and bedding.
Emergency Loan Service – where we provide a folding bed, chair(s) and small fridge to help clients feel comfortable at home until they either receive Community Care Grant goods or can afford to buy these essential items.
