Who we help

Our payments can be used to help you with your bills, household costs, travel or other essentials that you’ve incurred as a result of something happening that you couldn’t have expected.  They are not loans, you don’t have to pay us back and it costs you nothing to apply to us.

"When a Housing Association found me a home near work, TST helped me to pay my first month’s rent and gave me money for carpets and furniture."
