by | 15 October 2023 | Notice, Support Group, Worksop

Bassetlaw District Council and Bassetlaw Community Voluntary Service (BCVS) are proud to announce their continued partnership for the second consecutive year, aimed at providing vital support to local residents as they navigate the challenges of the upcoming autumn season.

The Bassetlaw Cost of Living booklet, initially introduced last year, quickly became an invaluable resource for residents seeking guidance on financial support, mental health services, family assistance, energy solutions, housing, access to affordable food and clothing and much more. Now, with additional information and resources, the 2023 edition is poised to be an even greater asset for those in need.

This invaluable resource will be distributed across Bassetlaw and made readily available in key community spaces to ensure accessibility for all residents. An online version of the booklet will be available to anyone with internet access, along with web pages that can be translated into various languages to cater to the diverse demographics of the area.

Councillor Lynne Schuller, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing at Bassetlaw District Council, expressed her thoughts on the initiative and said: “The impact of the cost of living cuts across many aspects of people’s lives be it debt, health, relationships etc. and it can be difficult to know where to find help and support. The booklet pulls the information together in one easy to use document. We know that many hundreds of local residents used it last year and we are delighted to work with a range of local organisations to publish the updated version.”
