Newham changemaker

Burhan is the Service Manager at MoneyWorks, a service that exclusively offers support to Newham residents who may be struggling with debt or the everyday cost of living. They help residents with the payment of utility bills, whether that’s providing energy vouchers for emergency support or offering advice on how residents can reduce bills, renew tariffs and get reconnected.


“We are essentially helping residents put food on the table and keep warm. Our goal is to understand their complete situation and provide them with the holistic support they need. If we can’t assist them, we usually know another service that can. There is a direct link between mental health and financial difficulties and it’s our job to help reduce the financial burden as much as possible and make sure people keep warm

and healthy during winter.”

– Burhan Uddin, Service Manager, MoneyWorks
