Additional information:Black Country Housing Group is part of the FirstStop ‘Managing Money Better’ project funded by Comic Relief under their ‘Managing Money Better programme’ to help provide in-depth tailored advice on the financial issues that older face when making decisions about their housing and care options. The organisation is concerned that this part of its service reaches people who may be particularly vulnerable such as those people who live in the most unfit accommodation or in particular need of advice to avoid fuel poverty.
