What is our community help point?
Community help points are established and trusted places within communities such as libraries, voluntary organisations and/or community centres.
What does our community help point do?
Community help points can help you to:
- Access Staffordshire Connects or access information about local services or activities if you can’t access it yourself.
- Become more confident in using the internet to help find information and solutions
- Find out about equipment and technology to make daily living easier.
The Help Point is a gateway to find support for (but not limited to):
- Becoming more independent;
- Improving health and increasing physical activity;
- Raising aspirations and setting goals in life;
- Developing social connections;
- Becoming more employable;
- Improving mental health and wellbeing;
Once you make contact, you will speak to a member of Burton Albion Community Trust staff who will explore more about your needs and goals and will recommend suitable programmes.
Programmes could include the Adult Weight Management Programme, Fit Fans, or Kicks which supports young people.
Individuals looking to get more active could be advised to attend Premier League Kicks sessions where young people can take part in a variety of sports, e-sports and youth hub activities which can lead to volunteering and training opportunities. Adults may be encouraged to join our walking football, or women’s recreational sessions.
Those looking to get back into education or further their chances of employment could join the BBO Programme, where they will receive workshops and experiences based around workplace training, money management, social action projects and one-to-one mentoring.
