Individuals will be able to call, leave a message or email the new Community Support Helpline and the query will be dealt with by the council’s experienced community support team within 48hrs.

With information on key services available from Council and partner agencies including advice services, food banks, Jobs & Benefits, Southern Regional College & Southern Health & Social Care Trust – the helpline can assist you with a range of queries or questions you may have.
