We all need a little extra support at some point in our lives, so we offer helping hand services to make things a bit easier. 

This page explains what might be helpful, but please bear in mind that everybody’s situation is different, so what’s available will vary from person to person. Check out our Helping Hand policy which sets out our goals to make sure that everyone can access our services easily

Many of our services are free or provided at cost price.
