Supporting You Team

The council now has a dedicated Supporting You Team. These are specialist trained advisors who work alongside our other service teams. Their role is to help people access a wide range of help.

This support includes:

  • income maximisation;
  • debt advice;
  • employment advice;
  • budgeting support; and,
  • health and wellbeing advice.

Please note: at this current time we do not have funding to provide supermarket food vouchers or carpets. We can refer clients to a local charity who may be able to support with second hand white goods if they have availability at the time of request.

Supporting You leaflet

The pandemic and the rise in the cost of living has impacted on all of us in many ways. We have produced a new leaflet which aims to highlight key information. This includes support for the vulnerable; help with finances; and energy tips.
