Finding support in your community
Community Help Points
Community help points are established and trusted places within communities such as libraries, voluntary organisations and/or community centres. They will be able to help with advice about cost of living pressures.
If you know someone who isn’t online but would benefit from speaking to someone, you can direct them to a local community help point for advice and support.
Community help points can help you to:
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.
Debt, finance, and form filling
Access befriending services - local and national
Support with identifying local paid home help services, such as cleaners and gardeners.
