Help for those in need from Shropshire charities service

People finding life difficult can seek support from a service being run by four Shropshire charities.

The Thrive Partnership, run by the Stay, YMCA, Maninplace and Kip@Maninplace charities, is offering help to anybody from Telford & Wrekin aged 16 or over with support needs.

After an initial assessment, the partnership draws up a support plan, pointing people in the direction of the help that is available to them.

Kay Bennett, of the Stay charity, said that some people would need one-off help, while for others a longer-term plan of up to six months was available.

She said as a result of the pandemic, much of the help was now accessed by telephone or messaging services, although face-to-face support was still available where necessary.

Miss Bennett said help with housing, jobs benefits and improving skills was among the support available.

Anybody in need of help can contact the service on 01952 291904 or email
