Community Action Services (CAS)

Free Community Social Work Service for Stowmarket*

Life Resolutions has extended it's service and has developed a free local community based project, run for the benefit of those living in Stowmarket.

We are able to offer a service to all generations living in Stowmarket. This includes those living in their homes but also in sheltered and care environments too. You can self refer, have a friend call us or ask a professional to contact us on your behalf. Phone us on 01449 612262 now to see how we can help you.


How can we provide a free service?

CAS is a service delivered by our student social work hub. All students are on approved university social work programmes in East Anglia. By participating in our hub, the students are developing their skills and knowledge whilst helping those that otherwise would be unlikely to access such support. The students are supervised and supported by an extensive team including qualified social workers, thier universities and other professionals, so you get the benefit of drawing on years of experience during difficult times. What's more, we all benefit from fresh and new ideas from enthusiatic students just starting in a rewarding career.


What can we do for you?

Our student hub supports the local community and residents in a variety of ways. Our service supports all generations including supporting children and young people with self esteem, confidence and gaining independence, through to  home welfare visits for older people, befriending, transition from home to sheltered environments (and back home again). We can liaise with professionals on your behalf and advocating your needs when needed. We can also be extra support if you are moving into the area whilst you settle in. We can help you with those one-off emergencies or your long term needs.


Am I Eligible for help?

The student hub aims to provide help to those not deemed eligible for support from the local authority and cannot afford to pay for the help they need, often those considered to only have low or moderate needs. We work to support you at an early stage with an aim to reduce the potential for future crisis. We work in partnership with a variety of organisations to help you get access to services that you need. So if you or a family member live in Stowmarket and have social care needs not supported by statutory services our student hub may be able to help.


Can you help outside of Stowmarket?

Yes we can, as the students time is freely given. However you will need to meet any out of pocket expenses i.e. travel costs if the students travel to you. These costs are dependent on your location and agreed in advance. We do welcome clients at our offices in Stowmarket by appointment if this is easier for you.
