There will be representatives from more than 30 agencies, including housing services, Citizens’ Advice Bureau, Jobcentre Plus, Hampshire police, Quit 4 Life and The Beacon Food Bank.

There are food vouchers for local supermarkets, children’s activities on offer and free refreshments available.

‘If you are worried come along and talk to an adviser, it really does help to talk through your issues.’
