We know many people across the district are in need of practical and emotional support in their day to day lives but don’t necessarily know where to turn. Our Here to HELP team are available from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Thursday to share information and signpost people to local services and activities.
We also like to get out and about across the district – we’d love to come and deliver our Here to HELP talks at your events or arrange a drop in with your organisation. Topics covered include ‘energy saving’, ‘scams’, ‘how to stay warm and well’ or we can simply come and tell your members about the services we offer and those available in the local area.
Don’t forget we’re Here to HELP in any way we can!
How to contact us:
01423 813090 / 01423 813096
Please call between 9am and 3pm Monday to Thursday and please leave a message if no one answers. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
