About getting help early

If you need help you with things such as your cleaning, laundry, shopping or gardening there's lots of services and support groups in the community who can help. Find a service on Live Well Barnsley to see what's available. You might also find some useful information in our guide to older people's services.

Visit our housing webpages for advice about how to make your home warmer and cheaper to run, including energy saving measures such as new boilers and insulation, and how to get help with energy bills. If you're a Berneslai Homes tenant, contact them to find out about the support available as part of your tenancy agreement.

If you need more advice and think you'd benefit from having a social care assessment, find out how we can help with your care needs.
