    This service is not run by the Council and information should be used for contact purposes only


    Service Description: The Council has formed a partnership with Isle Help who will provide a revised Local Assistance Scheme with the help of a successful funding bid from BT.

    The Council has successfully delivered the Local Assistance Scheme for three years, however, following the end of further funding from Central Government, alternative options to extend a provision on the Island were considered.

    The revised scheme (Local Assistance Scheme) will run from 1 May 2016 and be provided by Isle Help.

    Applications for help and support should be made to Isle Help by clicking the website link provided below or if you need assistance to apply, please telephone on 0800 952 0050. From 1 May 2016, Isle Help will consider all applications and will contact applicants regarding their requests.

    Please note: Applications, awards and contact will no longer be provided by the Isle of Wight Council from 1 May 2016 with regards to the Local Assistance Scheme
