Need information on local support this Winter?
Please note: These guides are from Winter 2022. Updated advice will be available shortly.
We know this Winter will be hard with the cost of living crisis, but there is lots of support out there in Manchester if you do need it. To help local people, Manchester Local Care Organisation’s integrated neighbourhood teams across the city have worked with colleagues at Manchester City Council and the voluntary sector to produce a series of neighbourhood service guides which you can now access online.
The booklets outline much of the local support that is available across each neighbourhood. These include food banks, warm hubs, befriending services and other local offers. There are 12 booklets in total that cover 13 neighbourhood areas (our two Wythenshawe based teams have provided a combined booklet).
The guides complement the citywide support available through Manchester City Council’s free cost of living advice line. This free telephone line offers support with benefits and help with your rent, advice about debt and paying bills , food support and help to get online (support to access the internet, laptops, phones and data).
The advice line is open Monday to Friday 9am to 4.30pm on 0800 023 2692. You can speak to someone about the support that is available. You can also text on 07860 022 876 or visit manchester.gov.uk/coladvice
