New guide to finding cost of living support in Gosport

Local people can find help with the cost of living in a new guide produced by Gosport Borough Council.

They can find the guide online, or pick up a free booklet from local outlets.

The information covers council services, local groups and other organisations that can provide support, advice and help, including with food and heating.

Other topics include clothes and other essentials; debts; scams; benefits; health and wellbeing, and free and low-cost activities. There are also details of how to help others.

The online details will be updated regularly and anyone with information they feel should be added can email us.

The 12-page booklet contains the main points from the online guide. It can be downloaded in colour or (to save printing costs) in black and white.

Printed copies are available from today at the Town Hall in Gosport High Street, the Discovery Centre in Gosport High Street, Citizens Advice Gosport in Pavilion Way, Elson Community Library and Hub in Chantry Road, Lee Hub in Lee-on-the-Solent High Street, Gosport Voluntary Action in Pavilion Way and FirstLight Trust in Gosport High Street.

Cllr Peter Chegwyn, Leader of the Council, said: “We know this is a very tough time for many local people, and this is one way we can help – by making sure residents know what support is available and how to get it. It can be difficult to find out what help is out there, but we’ve brought together lots of useful, practical information, including phone numbers, web links and email addresses. I’m sure this will make a difference to a lot of people looking for support, as well as to local groups who need the information at their fingertips.”
