‘Help is Here’ campaign launched to further help residents during cost-of-living crisis

A new campaign called ‘Help is Here’ has been launched by Newham Council to help residents know where to go for help throughout the borough.

The Council’s Help is Here booklet lists a range of help that is available to support people around finances, housing, energy bills, food, work, health and emotional wellbeing.

The Mayor of Newham, Rokhsana Fiaz OBE, said: “Our new all-in-one list organisations providing this and the online map shows exactly where this is available in person at a wide range of locations.”

The campaign’s key feature is a new suite of information and resources to help increase awareness amongst residents, voluntary sector, local businesses and partners of all the help that is available in Newham to help people manage the increase in the cost of living. Over 300,000 instances of support have been provided so far.
