Community help points

What is a community help point?

Community help points are established and trusted places within communities such as libraries, voluntary organisations and/or community centres.  

Help points will be:

  • Located at an accessible place that people can visit on a regular basis i.e. library or community centre
  • Able to share local knowledge and information
  • Friendly and approachable
  • Able to receive referrals via email

What do they do?

Community help points can help you to:

  • Access information about local services or activities
  • Become more confident in using the internet to help find information and solutions
  • Access the Staffordshire County Council and Staffordshire Connects websites or share some of the important information in them with you if you can’t access them yourself
  • Find out where to buy equipment and technology to make daily living easier.

Where are they?
