Support for older and disabled people

There are a number of organisations that provide assistance for older and disabled people.

The Neighbourhood Support Service is a confidential service giving advice and assistance to enable older or disabled people to maintain their home and to continue to live independently in the community.  This is short term support funded by Wolverhampton City Council and so is free to clients

It is open to people over 60, or disabled people of any age.

Neighbourhood Support Officers provide advice and sign post people to a range of services including

  • housing
  • adaptations
  • finance
  • staying safe
  • help with form filling
  • domestic tasks
  • care
  • health
  • social activities
  • support in a crisis

Whilst the Neighbourhood Support Service is free there may be a charge made by some services to which you are referred.
