Debt advice services in Shropshire survey-Deadline Extended

Shropshire Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly (VCSA), Shropshire Association of Local Council (SALC) and Shropshire Council are working together to better understand the work taking place in Shropshire to provide debt advice and support those people who may have money worries, debt or facing financial hardship.

They hope this survey will help them to shine a light on the work that is already taking place, help identify gaps, and identify support needs and opportunities to develop further partnerships and collaborative working.

The Feedback and Insight team will support with survey analysis, and the aim is that the results will help form a baseline for future research. This survey is open to everyone.

To enable collaboration for the future, they would be interested to know if you would like to attend a money advice forum where they can share the results of the questionnaire and set out future priorities. In the space at the end of the survey you have opportunity to say if you would like to take part.

About the film: Like a whole series of Black Mirror in one film, these five darkly humorous, interlinking stories explore our increasing dependence upon digital media. Cyberstalking, social media, online shopping, swipe dating, vlogging – all come under its insightful gaze. Given our increased reliance on technology to stay connected under the current Covid-19 lockdown, this is a wry commentary on the tyranny of internet connections and screens.

Tristan Aurouet, Thomas Bidegain, Tristan Aurouet, Cyril Gelblat, Vianney Lebasque
(2019) FRA The film lasts 1 hour and 48 minutes.
