Perennial - What we do

 

As I write 15 Perennial staff across the country will be helping colleagues in horticultural trades as they face some of lifes toughest challenges.

We have 11 caseworkers and 4 debt advisors who are professional, friendly and non judgemental and happy to help whether you are facing sudden loss of income through redundancy or major illness, disadvantaged by disability or family circumstances or overwhelmed by personal debt, these are just some of the circumstances which bring people to us.

Our caseworkers can help you with claiming or challenging benefits and tax credits decisions, we are all fully trained so whether you need help working out what you are entitled to or you need representation at a Social Security tribunal, we have someone in your area that can help you.

We also help with ensuring that people can access the help that they are entitled to from other government departments. Particularly relevant if you are suddenly facing living with a disability or life changing illness or maybe you are juggling working with a caring repsonsibility. We understand that getting the help and equipment that you need can be tough, we can help with that and where state help isn't available we may be able to help with a grant from our funds.

Our debt advisors can help with personal debt, negotition with creditors, dealing with county court judgements, bankruptcy and debt relief orders etc and there is no charge - not even hidden in the small print!

We help the whole family, we love being able to help the children of horticulturists since merging with the Royal Fund for Gardeners Children.

There is no typical client, we deal with individuals with individual problems and we respect that, our aim is to help you to find a way forward and we will work with you for as long as is needed to either solve your problem or until the best possible outcome has been acheived.

"Hi James. I bought the Pick Tine and have only used it on one job. This was on a flower bed with soft soil. Perhaps I'm wrong, but, I look at tools as to how often they are used and therefore value for money. The hedge cutter, pruner and strimmer (s…"

"I’d say the hedge trimmer attachment is not as good as some others on the market, Stihl’s old version was brilliant, the new one I would not buy again. "

Hi all.Our echo brush cutter after 7 years of abuse is now beyond economical repair. I was going to plump for the exact same new model, but knowing parts can be pricey I've vaguely thought about purchasing a different brand. My newest employee…
