Community support website launched
Wiltshire Council has created an online interactive community directory to help people find out what warm spaces and community food providers there are in the county to support them through the cost of living challenges.
The directory has been created using information collected by the council to establish what support is already up and running in the county.
To find out the support that’s available on your doorstep and across the county, just visit Interactive Community Directory - Wiltshire Council and select your postcode area – this will then automatically generate a list of what’s available, as well as a host of other useful features.
For anyone wishing to make donations to the community food providers there are contact and website details included for each with more information to find out how best to do this.
Wiltshire Council has also collated a range of information and guidance on a variety of cost of living related topics such as energy, council tax and benefits, housing information, the support of local partner agencies, and advice on mental health.
There is also a section dedicated to support and advice for businesses. The council’s cost of living support information can be found at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/cost-of-living and these pages will be updated regularly.
