A one-stop-shop for local help and support
If you are struggling to pay for necessities like food and fuel because of the impact of COVID-19, you can use the Isle Find It Directory of Services to find sources of local support available in your area.
You will also find details about local organisations, restaurants, food retailers and charitable organisations who may be able to offer support by searching the directory, including those who can offer financial management or debt advice.
This information will be updated regularly as we learn of new services and offers so it is worth returning here to see what is new.
For a comprehensive list of local services click on the Isle Find It link on the right hand side of the page.
Further support for families and individuals is available through the Help Through Crisis team at Citizens Advice Isle of Wight who can help you access support.
Additionally, below are details about connect4communities funded projects designed to help households facing hardship because of the pandemic.
