Our newsletter is distributed to customers twice a year.
Welcome to the summer edition of Your Wrekin newsletter
Welcome to the summer edition of Your Wrekin newsletter. We’re doing things slightly differently this year; by sending our newsletter digitally to everyone we have an email address for, the money saved will be invested in the services that matter to you.
You will still be able to enter our competitions through our website, and our popular calendar competition is back again for the fourth year.
Feeling the pinch? See how we can help
The cost of living crisis is squeezing households across the country as energy bills, groceries and fuel soar in price.
At Wrekin, we have specialist Debt Advice and Money Matters teams who always work hard to provide practical tips and offer support to any tenant worried about their finances.
We know that it can be hard to take the first steps to talk about money or get advice, and we’re here to help. We want to make it easier for our tenants to ask for support, whether it’s for budgeting advice or full on debt management – our friendly Money Matters team are here for you. They offer a confidential, non-judgemental service to support all tenants. Call 01952 217234 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Protecting yourself against financial abuse
If you’re not in control of your own finances, you may be a victim of financial abuse.
Anyone can be subject to this abuse, not just those in long-term relationships. Other family members, like children or siblings, may attempt to take advantage. This can look like not having access to your own bank account, others closely watching what you spend your money on or applying for credit cards using your details.
With services returning to some normality, there is a lot more support out there. If you think someone you know is a victim, see something – say something!

Inspiring eco-art wanted for calendar competition
Taking care of the earth has never been more important. We want to celebrate the incredible work you’re doing to help make a change in our 2023 calendar, and inspire others to do the same.
Show us how you’re making an impact – get snapping, painting or creating! Think hedgehog hotels for the autumn months, busy bumble bees for spring and summer, and reclaimed ‘rubbish’ sculptures to add a splash of colour to the winter months.
Entries can be in any and every medium, and you have until 31 August 2022 to submit a photo of your work. For more guidelines on how to enter, visit our calendar 2023 web page.
Our summer competitions are online too. You could win £50 in shopping vouchers by finding the missing word in our finance themed wordsearch or wowing our designer with a fishy themed colouring!
If you’d like to take part in the competitions but are unable to do so online, get in touch with us at YourWrekin@wrekin.com and we will send you a print out.
