Support for residents

The Council is part of Norfolk's multi-agency operational response, with partners at Norfolk County Council and the voluntary sector, ensuring people continue to get the help they need during challenging times. Whether you are a clinically vulnerable person, need help to self-isolate or perhaps need financial help owing to changes in employment, you can call 0344 800 8020 or complete the My Norfolk Social Care online form for assistance.

You can also find details below of some of the support schemes available.

Household Support Fund

The Council has been allocated Department of Work and Pensions funding by Norfolk County Council to support older people, eg households where a resident(s) has reached pension age, with essential utility bills, food or to meet other essential living costs at this time where many households are experiencing increases in fuel and cost of living prices.

We may be able to help with other emergency needs or advice depending on individual households circumstances. If you or your household are in need of support please contact us using the contact information below.

To apply please email earlyhelphub@great-yarmouth.gov.uk or telephone the Council's Community Helpline on 0808 196 2238.
