Support for residents and communities

As well as a wide range of extra support and advice for individuals, we have grants and other support available to community groups and small local businesses, to help them keep going. 

There’s more information about all this support - and on topics like domestic violence, bonfires, noise and fly tipping - in the questions and answers on this page.

If you’ve lost a loved one, we can help you access support if you need it – whether that’s emotional or financial. For example, you may be able to get help towards funeral costs. Please contact us if you’d like to know more or visit the pages on ‘What to do when someone dies: step by step’.
