About Community support services are for people living independently in the community who need some help with living skills and goals. We provide help for adults, who are living in the community and who have mental illness or an intellectual disability. We support people to reach their goals, whether that is learning a new daily living skill, tapping into social networks in the community, assisting with housing, or exploring work or study options. People set the goal - we are there to help.

About Jubilee Budget Advisory Service Ltd is a non profit charitable company owned by the Jubilee Christian Charitable Trust. The budget service evolved at the same time to compliment the Trusts work to provide budgeting advice and education, to empower those to be good stewards with their own finances and live a life less complicated with no or low debt. We are a free and confidential service and funded by various Government departments and local organisations. Our aim is to empower the client – not take over and control their finances. It is important that we share our knowledge and resources to better equip them. This not only encourages the clients but provides a positive impact to both their families and their communities.
