They can look at ways to solve any problems or issues you are expecting, this could be help with finances, benefits, housing, feeling lonely or anxious or something else.


They can work with you to set goals that you would like to achieve


They keep up to date with what is happening locally so you know about new services and resources in the community


They will also look at ways to support you going to services if this is needed
