A scheme to provide support and advice for Walsall families struggling with the rising cost of living has been launched by Walsall Council.
A new scheme to provide support and advice for Walsall families struggling with the rising cost of living was launched in September 2022.
'Cost of Living Support' has been developed by Walsall Council, working in partnership with organisations from across the borough.
The service includes a web portal to provide residents with the latest information and advice. Additional support for those who need help getting online or accessing council services will be offered by Walsall Connected at all libraries across Walsall and through community associations.
The Council hopes the link will provide practical advice and signposting for those seeking help.
Included within the scheme is information on accessing grants, payments or discounts through the Council and external agencies such as energy and water companies. Information on benefits, foodbanks and debt advice is also available.
The Cost of Living Support Scheme follows the Council's recent drive to make more services available online and accessible to residents 24 hours a day and follows the recent launch of Walsall Connected, a service designed to help those who don't have access to the internet.
