Rescue & Advice Hub
The Help Through Crisis Advice & Rescue Hub based at West Ealing Community Managed Library is the Borough’s first one stop support service for residents likely to endure a short-term crisis. At the Hub we offer a range of specialist tailored support services through our partnerships with local organisations and Ealing Council, working closely with:
- Good Things Foundation
- Shaw Trust
- Ealing Adult Learning
- Simply Connect
- West London Equality Centre
- Ealing Foodbank
- Ealing Law Centre
How to access the Rescue & Advice Hub?
If you are an organisation currently supporting a resident who needs additional support to overcome crisis or preventative intervention, please complete a referral form Please note, unfortunately residents cannot self-refer into the Hub.
Please note that this is not crisis management support. The service is designed to educate and upskill those who have fallen into short-term crisis with the necessary support to help themselves out of crisis and prevent future crisis.
Once referred to the Hub, clients can receive a total of six support sessions in one or more of the specialist support areas listed below:
What support is available?
- Support for domestic violence and abuse
- Digital Skills and Well-being
- Support for Gaining Employment
