Working with residents, businesses, the voluntary and community sector, Northumberland Communities Together (NCT) will support those who need it this winter and beyond.

Its Response Hub is available seven days a week. The team helps residents access services and advice that will support them with rising costs, keeping warm and well and their mental health and well-being.

“I want to assure them support is in place to help. Our Northumberland Communities Together Response Hub can help signpost to much-needed advice and guidance.

“As a council, we are doing all we can to access grants available to us to help our residents such as the Household Support Fund – but in the meantime, I urge anyone who is struggling, worrying or simply wants to talk to someone about their situation to get in touch with the team.”

Northumberland Communities Together works with a wide network of community spaces, places and people across the county.
