|Pray for Sussex Deaf Association which is being supported by the Church Urban Fund to provide assistance to deaf people who are deprived – including support with benefits, training on finances and health and wellbeing. These sessions mean that workers can simplify letters from benefit offices, banks, debt agencies, and health information, to improve deaf people’s welfare. There is an urgent need to support deaf people in understanding recent benefit changes.
Pray also for Money Mentors – part of Citizens UK’s response to the financial crisis. Through Money Mentors, the local community is taking responsibility for educating its young people in the responsible management of money.
The Christian basis for Citizens UK’s campaigning on these issues is explored in Crunch Time: A Call to Action – a collection of essays produced by the Contextual Theology Centre for churches in the alliance.
