BATCA AGM highlights
CAB presentation on support with cost of living crisis

The BATCA  AGM on 8th March was a great launchpad for a good year in 2022. Many thanks to Tooting United Reformed Church for their hospitality.

Highlights were:

Presentation from Citizens Advice Wandsworth

Sheree Pinheiro of CAB/WCEN was a superb guide to the many sources of advice and support for those facing financial hardship. A lot is available but little is known about it. Her presentation is a great resource – please forward to any who could use it.   https://mcusercontent.com/e47bff345ce57a3990d13aa54/files/bd1a6ca6-386c-2d79-0a8d-a4bb42ef7c8c/AFA_Financial_hardship_March_2022_1_.pptx
