Places and People who can help

There are lots of community groups and organisations that can offer help with the cost of living. Many of these provide their help for free or very low cost.

You can find out more in the Community directory.

You can find lots of practical help with eating well, keeping well and staying warm this winter. If you are struggling, remember you are not alone, this is a very difficult time for many of us. There are lots of places who can offer support, especially if you are feeling low.
