Pathways for getting help

Help Through Hardship

Help Through Hardship is a helpline coordinated by Citizens Advice and Trussell Trust.

Advisors can help address your crisis and provide support to maximise your income, help you navigate the benefits system, and identify any additional grants you could be entitled to. If needed, they’ll issue you with a voucher so you can get an emergency food parcel.

Call 08082082138 or free and confidential advice

Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm

Cost of Living

Both council authorities in West Cumbria (Cumberland and Westmorland and Furness) are providing many pathways to support during the current Cost of Living crisis.

You can find these on their websites, depending on which type of support you require.
