Free Service

The service is free of charge, confidential, independent and impartial. We can help you with a range of issues which may be about claiming benefits, housing, health and care issues or local services. You may be facing a crisis, or just considering your options. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination in all that we do. We respond to an individual’s needs without regard to their gender, sexual orientation, disability, race or religion.

We aim to provide the information and advice that you need for the issues that you face. We won’t judge you, persuade you or tell you what you should do – we will listen, explain all the available options to you and support you in the course of action you decide to take. If we aren’t able to help you, we will try to help you find someone who can.
