Changing Lives

 We’re investing in our communities and their future – to enable better lives through our impact programmes and innovative approach to tackling social challenges. We’re making a difference.


Our Financial Wellbeing Team support our customers to access the benefits they are entitled to, helping them to be financially healthy.

“Once again thank you for your continued support and the referrals you have already done for us. We are blown away by yours and Asters customer care.”

“Thank you for all of your hard work…You really have gone above and beyond for us and I really do appreciate it.”

“I couldn’t have done this without all your help and support, and I am very grateful”.

Our free Mental Health training reaches out to organisations in our communities:

“I now feel confident to be able to support both colleagues and family members with any mental health issues. I voluntarily offered support to a colleague which I wouldn’t have done without training.”

Housing First helps people break the cycle of homelessness to find a home of their own.

“Everyone deserves a chance and I cannot thank Aster enough. This has given me my independence, freedom and the knowledge that I have a future.”


Customer stories

Donna's story

When Donna was struck down by serious illness, her whole world fell apart. She found she could no longer live in her former home and was moved into temporary accommodation. Aster stepped in and offered her a level access bungalow. Unfortunately, because of her change in circumstances she could no longer work and was forced to claim universal credit (UC).

Our Financial Wellbeing team helped Donna navigate the processes and applications for grants and the additional financial support she was entitled to.

Donna was over the moon: ‘I couldn’t have done this without all your help and support, and I am very grateful’
