What Does Help Direct Do?
Help Direct is a support and information service for all adults aged 18 and over across Lancashire. Our service is designed to help people get the right practical support, information and advice that they need before a small problem becomes a crisis.
Help Direct can be accessed by phone, email or face-to-face at all of our drop-in centres. People can also find our advisors at some local GP surgeries, libraries, community centres and many more.
We can help you get the most of our life in any of the following areas:
- Health and Fitness
- Home and Garden
- Feeling Safe in Your Home and Community
- Learning and Leisure
- Managing Finance
- Mobility and Transport
- Community Groups and Involvement
- Getting the Right Help and Support
- Relationships and Families
- Employment, Volunteering and Training
Help Direct launched in November 2008 as a service commissioned by Lancashire County Council and is an investment to help build and link community-based preventative and wellbeing services. Delivery of the Help Direct service was awarded to several different providers accross the county. For this area, it was awarded to Age Concen Lancashire who deliver Help Direct in Lancaster, Chorley and West Lancashire.
