Town Spirit

Looking after ourselves and each other

We support the most vulnerable people, and we need to focus the resources we have on helping the people most in need.

We'll make sure everyone can get access to the support they need at the earliest possible stage, but we need you to keep your own and your family's health at its best.

By working together and looking after each other, we can prevent people's needs becoming so great that they need higher level, specialist support.

Our commitment

  • Support people to get help early

  • Help elderly and disabled people to live independently at home for longer

  • Protect vulnerable people and children who are at risk of harm

  • Help you to stay healthy

  • Help you kick drugs, alcohol or crime
