The LIFE Centre Stourbridge was registered as a
Charitable Incorporated Organisation on 14th March 2014.


CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES
We are a Christian support to the community within Stourbridge. After a local survey of needs in the community, the management team decided to initially concentrate on debt advice and so Life Centre Debt Advice was launched in association with Community Money Advice (CMA) as part of this initiative. It is expected in future years to expand the outreach of the life centre into different projects

OUR CHARITABLE OBJECTS
1. To relieve poverty by providing ethical debt and money management advice, free of charge.

2. To promote social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded (for the purpose of this clause 'socially excluded' means being excluded from society, or parts of society, as a result financial hardship) and assisting them to integrate into society in particular but not exclusively by;
(I) Providing advocacy services for people who are unable to advocate for themselves because of fear or lack of knowledge or lack of confidence
(II) Providing training and guidance to develop people's financial capability
(III) Helping those who have been isolated from, or who are out of touch with, society to re-adjust and re-integrate by befriending them and re-building their confidence in their local community.

3. The advancement of the Christian faith by evangelistic mission that is carried out on an entirely non-coercive and invitational basis, and in accordance with the faithworks charter given as appendix 1 of the constitution.

THE DEBT ADVICE TEAM
Our team of volunteers are Christians from local churches serving our community as Debt Advisers and Support Workers here in the Stourbridge High Street.
