ACTS435 is a revolutionary website that allows people to give money directly to others but they are in need of more access points in Cornwall.
The scheme is managed through a network of churches and local charities and puts people who can give in touch with people who are in need.
ACTS435 in Cornwall has had a number of requests recently and they care looking for charities, community groups, foodbanks or churches to join as an advocate to administer the funding.
The role of an advocate:
When someone needs to request financial help, they meet the advocate taking part in Acts 435. The advocates are the crucial link between people who need financial help, and people who want to help. They serve as an advocate (spokesperson) for those in need in their community, and put their requests on the Acts 435 website.
The advocates are all volunteers, and they are people who have a heart to help those in need, and they keep details of their meetings confidential. The advocates are supported by the Acts 435 team, and receive training and help.
