People in west Norfolk will benefit from a new service that launched at the town hall in King’s Lynn on Friday 11 October.
The West Norfolk Help Hub is aimed at professionals who offer support to individuals or families experiencing difficulties. The hub looks to help address the customer's needs, before their difficulties become unmanageable.
The event, organised by the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, was to increase understanding of the West Norfolk Help Hub and how it can benefit professionals and their customers.
Lorraine Gore, Chief Executive of the borough council, who opened the event said: "It's wonderful that so many partners have got on board with the West Norfolk Help Hub.
"This multi-agency collaboration helps people of all ages and focuses on early intervention. I would like to thank everyone for attending today and look forward to seeing the organisations continuing to work together to make a difference."
Sammy Doak, Support Manager at Freebridge Community Housing, said:
“Using the West Norfolk Help Hub, Freebridge has been able to make sure that tenants who may be suffering from social isolation, problems with debts or mental health can now access good quality support via the hub and the many partner organisations who are working with it.
“The collaborative approach from the organisations involved has helped improve the quality of life for a number of individuals, and the support being provided is also helping tenants to successfully sustain their tenancies with us.”
West Norfolk Help Hub partners include Norfolk County Council, Leeway, Money Advice Hub, Norfolk Fire and Rescue, Action for Children, MAP, West Norfolk CCG and Freebridge Community Housing amongst many others.
