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.

For more information please contact me lchurchill@perennial.org.uk or to access our services please call 0845 230 1839.

Vic 575 replied to Gary RK's discussion The right cutting attachment for the job - Stihl
"Nylone line can't absorb water and how would cold water help anyway. Hot water might have an affect but only through the heat, surely. Given that most of us use the strimmer every day and that the line is already in the head, it would not be in any…"

"Well I have learnt something from that Gary, I did not know about soaking the line before use to make it less brittle."

From our friends at Stihl GB - a very useful article explaining the different cutting attachments for Brushcutters.
Very relevant given a few recent threads ...

"I have some tailored seat covers in the Hilux. I had some like these in my Mk6/7 Hilux’s. These are my current ones in the Mk8. You don't have to have red, they come in black and grey etc. I just happen to like the red. They do look just like leathe…"

"They want it all doing over the next couple months once the kids are back in school and off the grass etc, so no real option to wait.

"I wouldn't bother with a weedkill now, it's getting late in the season. Scarify, moss control, and weed in May"

"They did do a 1.1 but as I said, the "cutters" are too wide and foul part of the saw.

Jon Davidson replied to Oliver clarkson's discussion Van seat covers
"I got some from https://www.ukcustomcovers.com on their eBay shop for my bench seat set up van and they are still ok 2.5 years later if not a little grubby and dusty. Fit well for all the bits around the seats and folding areas"

Nick @ NM Garden Services Ltd replied to Allan Steele's discussion Alternative chain for Stihl MSA 200 C and HT-Km pole pruner
"No clue I’m afraid - I purchased whatever was listed on their website for my ground saws and they fit. 
Our pole pruners stay sharper for much longer than the ground saws (ms280 and ms360) as they aren’t used anywhere near the ground and are always…"
