Have your circumstances changed because of Coronavirus?
As shops and businesses prepare to re-open their doors for the first time
since March, we are all about to find out more about what the ‘new normal’
looks like. Many of you will have worries and concerns such as:
Is it safe to return to work after being furloughed?
What about if I am living with friends or family members who are still
How can I work if my children are not able to return to school?
Is my job at risk?
How will I pay my bills?
What should I do if I can’t pay my rent?
Will I be evicted?
Will Bailiffs come to my home?
Where is my nearest Food Bank?
How do I access mental health support?
How do I access disability benefits?
I cannot understand my universal credit payments
Why have I lost my tax credits?
I would like to appeal a benefit decision
ave you been impressed by the level of community action
during the pandemic? Would you like to be involved and
make a difference after lockdown?
Then Paddock Wood & District Lions need you!
Who are the Lions? Lions International is one of the
largest international organisations serving communities all
over the world. Paddock Wood & District Lions cover Paddock
Wood and all the surrounding villages including Matfield and Brenchley.
Who joins Lions? It could be you! We are men and women from all walks of
life who enjoy helping others and meeting up socially.
What do we do? Our motto is ‘We Serve’ and that’s what we try to do. We
raise funds through a range of activities including the Paddock Wood Carnival,
East Peckham Fun Run, the Duck Race and not forgetting the Christmas Sleigh
which brings joy and goodwill to the whole community. We then use the funds to
support charities, local community groups and deserving individuals.
How much time will it take? We meet once a month usually in a local
hostelry but the time and commitment that you give to Lions depends on your
own personal circumstances.

on 0345 833 9564 or email@example.com.
We will be re-opening for face to face clients during July. We are making
a few changes to our service to ensure the safety of clients, volunteers and
visitors and at first we will only see clients with appointments so we encourage
you to call or email us first rather than drop in.

We would like to thank our wonderful volunteer advisers who have been
working hard from behind the scenes on email and telephone throughout.
We are always looking for new volunteers and would love to hear from you if
you are able to commit to one morning a week. Full training is provided and
all advice is supervised. The role would particularly suit those who have been
involved with mutual aid or community support groups during the lockdown.
