Helping People in Liverpool for over 19 years
RAISE was established more 19 years ago to help Housing Association tenants with advice in their homes. We have developed a way of working that allows Benefit, Debt and Money Management workers to come together to offer an integrated service. We see people all over the Liverpool City Region and help them deal with their money. Since 2006, Raise has been a registered charity .
RAISE is a member of Advice UK and has the Advice Services Alliance Quality Mark for Welfare Benefits and Debt Advice with Casework.
To champion the fight against poverty and inequality enabling people to take control of their lives.
Providing outstanding specialist services for individuals incorporating benefit advice, representation, debt and money management that are accessible at the point of need and empower people to achieve a better standard of living.
