As part of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak there has been a joint response between a number of statutory and voluntary sector partners co-ordinated by the Collaborative Communities Board. There is a clear need to provide ongoing support to the Suffolk population both in response to Covid-19 and to meet wider support needs.
The Suffolk Advice and Support Service will bring together five essential areas of work.
- Single Point of Access
- Local Welfare Assistance Scheme
- Food banks
- Suffolk InfoLink
