All of us need help sometimes

We know that people all across the UK are experiencing the impact of increasing costs and feeling the pressure on household budgets. Thankfully, the authorities in Hampshire, Richmond and Surrey have resources available to support local residents. Please find more information below:

Hampshire Support in Hampshire includes the Community Pantries programme, which provides groceries at a lower rate than supermarkets at 19 separate locations within the county. For information or advice to help you with the cost of living, please visit Connect to Support Hampshire.

Richmond Families across Richmond and Kingston are feeling the impact of increasing costs and pressure on household budgets, which is why the Richmond Council Cost of Living Hub is available, providing a whole host information and support on a range of topics including household bills, family and child care, food, and health and care costs.

Surrey The Directory of Support, created by Surrey County Council, is designed to help, by sharing all the financial and welfare advice on offer in the county. If you are unable to find the right help and support on these webpages, you can speak with a member of the community helpline team, to talk through your needs and they will help to point you in the right direction for financial, welfare or wellbeing support in Surrey.
