At each one, staff can advise on a range of subjects including energy bill costs, rent problems, money worries, grants, benefits and isolation.
Organised by the borough council, the most recent one was held at Stoke Ferry.
Jo Rust, the borough councillor responsible for People and Communities, said: “As the nights draw in and our residents are impacted by the increased cost of heating their homes, and budgeting for Christmas, we want to reassure them that help is available, and we want to make sure they know what they’re entitled to and how to get it.
“These roadshows bring together different teams from the council including housing standards, Lily, Careline and external partners like Community Action Norfolk to give people access to the support that is there.”
Sue Lintern, a volunteer who helps run the Blue Bell in Stoke Ferry and is Councillor for the Wissey Ward where the event took place, said: “I’m pleased that we could bring this roadshow to our community pub and café, it’s been well received by the residents here with around 40 people attending to find out how the borough council can support our community. I hope to see the officers return here in the future.”
