A new organisation is being launched to help vulnerable Islanders access the help they are entitled to.

People Matter IW will function as a one-stop shop for people who need support with mobility, or advice on how to best spend the money allocated to them by the care system. Elderly Islanders and those who are disabled or dealing with illness could all benefit. A launch event is planned for 1 February when a Users and Carers Fair will be held at the Downside Community and Learning Centre, Newport, between 10:30am and 5pm.
