What is a community help point?

  • 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.
