You can listen to the pages by using something called ‘Browsealoud’. This reads out the information to you that is on the page. You can find the Browsealoud symbol on the top right side of each page.
When you are on an information page you will be able to find out about services near you on what you have been reading about. You can do this by clicking on a magnifying glass symbol towards the top right of the page. This is on most of the pages.

You can look for information by searching for it.
Type in what you want to find out about on the left of the home page where it says 'search'.

This website has information on:
Being well is about being healthy and feeling good about yourself and your life.
Being social is about keeping friendships and having good relationships. This can sometimes be difficult for different reasons.
Your home is a place where you should feel happy and safe. Sometimes people need support to live at home.
We have to feel safe. If we do not feel safe we cannot relax at home or have fun with our friends. If we do not feel safe we may not feel confident to go out.
We need to be able to manage our money. We need money for our homes, to pay our bills, for food and for fun activities and holidays.
We have information about being a parent. We can help you find out about childcare and education and other important things for children and families.
7. Looking after family and friends
If you help someone who could not manage without your help, you are a carer. We have information for carers about things like carer’s rights and benefits.
