Money and Cost of Living Support
Where can I get some advice?
There are a range of services and organisations across the county that can provide you with information and advice about housing, care, benefits, money, energy saving and general support.
This includes organisations like Age Uk and the Citizens Advice.
Both of these have local branches that you can access for support in your area as well as a national website that contains a lot of useful information.
If you want to find a organisation in your area that can support you, try searching here on Staffordshire Connects.
Please note: Some groups, services and activities may have changed how they operate. Please check websites, ring, email or contact the service via social media if you would like to find out what support is available.

Finding Warm Spaces
Across Staffordshire many community organisations are opening their doors to offer people a safe, warm, space this winter.
We will add information about what's happening in the districts and boroughs of Staffordshire as it becomes available.
The Warm Welcome Campaign exists to support and champion the community response to the cost-of-living crisis.
We have over 3000 registered organisations that have opened or are opening up free, warm, welcoming spaces for the public over this winter across the UK.
If you already offer a warm space you can register with the Warm Welcome Campaign.
