Our new MS Society project has now been running for 9 months and we would like to ask people affected by MS a few questions about the service. The survey will take less than 3 minutes to complete. The information from the survey will really help us to help people with MS.
HOOP Project - Housing Option for Older People
The HOOP project is aimed at helping people aged 50+ who need help with staying in their own home. It can also help people who feel that their home is no longer right for them. The project can help with: assessing entitlement to benefits, debts or general money worries eg about how to pay fuel bills. The project can also help with home improvement advice and adaptions and it can help people who are beginning to feel isolated and would like to get involved in social activities.
If you need help just fill in our simple form and we will get in touch with you to arrange for you to see an adviser. You can also phone for an appointment on 01626 770074
