Who to Contact
Depending on your needs it may be appropriate and that your problem could be dealt with by your circle of support or the voluntary sector, such as organisations like Isle Help or People Matter IW.
Isle Help is a partnership of voluntary sector information and advice organisations from the Isle of Wight that formed in 2013. The partnership came together in response to the challenging circumstances highlighted by the government. The partners all work together to provide information and advice over a wide range of subjects.
