BREATHE Advice and Advocacy Service

New Heights would like to introduce Breathe Advice and Advocacy Service. They are a new Big Lottery funded service based above the new Heights Community Cafe at 108 Warren Farm Road, Kingstanding, and are part of the wider New Heights Project.

B – Benefit Support

R – Rights and entitlements

E – Education and effective money management

A – Advice and Advocacy

T – Training of volunteers, residents & partners

H – Housing and Health/Disability Support

E – Empowering Service

BREATHE will be providing free independent, confidential & impartial advice for residents of the Erdington Constituency.

Including:

  • Benefit & grant information    
  • Health and Disability support
  • Carers Rights & Entitlements information    
  • Application form completion

As well as working on a one to one basis with clients, BREATHE will also be running small group sessions aimed at educating professionals and members of the public on welfare advice matters. The model we are using is based on empowering individuals, and the community, so that they feel better able to deal with issues themselves. As part of this approach the service will also be actively recruiting and training volunteers from the local community and surrounding areas.

The BREATHE Advice and Advocacy service opening and closing times are from Mon – Thurs 10:00 -15:00.
