There will be over 20 services available, all in one place, with the aim of making sure that
Islanders can access the support they need. The services and community groups attending
include Community Savings, Jersey Electricity, and Mind Jersey.
Minister for Social Security, Deputy Elaine Millar said “The Closer to Home events are an
important service that we continue to provide to our communities. I am delighted that we
have a number of services and community groups available all in one place for Islanders to
access and speak to directly.
“The cost of living continues to affect many people. It is vital that we are supporting our
community and providing them with access to a range of services and advisers, to support
not only their financial but overall wellbeing. I would encourage people to attend and
make the most of the advice available.”
