- They have physical, learning disability or mental health barriers whether permanent or temporary
- They are socially or geographically isolated within Wokingham Borough
- They have limited mobility due to age, health needs, family circumstances or economic pressures
- They are shielded individuals or are vulnerable due to a health condition, to Covid-19.

Areas of support

We can give advice on topics such as:
- Benefits including universal credit
- Debt
- Housing
- Employment
- Relationships
- Consumer advice and legal matters
- Immigration
- Health and Care

We cover all areas of Wokingham Borough.
