Councillor Eleanor Wills, Tameside Council’s Executive Member for Health and Wellbeing said:

‘’Ensuring our Helping Hand Information stall tours Tameside with cost of living support in 2023 is one of our top priorities. The stalls will bring services and organisation information directly to residents who may be struggling but do not want to or feel like they can come forward for support.

“January can be a particularly hard month after Christmas celebrations, so please come along for practical guidance for problems from finances to mental health. We want to highlight that Helping Hand is for everyone in Tameside, so please take the support that is available to you.’’
