What would you call 'A person who is ready for support all the time'?
I wanted to write an email and convey to some clients that I will always be there for support, and was stuck when I got to this.

Not sure if that's exactly what you were looking for, but I would write something like
Please do not hesitate to contact me again if you require further assistance.
Though the term is rather casual, a "go-to guy" (or "go-to person") is someone who is continuously available for help and support in a professional environment.
A generally acceptable phrase for this is on-call.
I am available on-call.
My contract includes 24/7 on-call technical support.
I may have to leave early if my phone rings because I'm on-call.
Depending on the kind of support you are providing, some alternatives are more appropriate than others.
For generic "technical support", something like this can work: "I will provide technical support and operational assistance through the lifetime of the project. Don't hesistate to contact me with questions, problems, or concerns."
Merriam-Webster's and myself offer the following:
Leech: a hanger-on who seeks advantage or gain
Parasite: something that resembles a biological parasite in dependence on something else for existence or support without making a useful or adequate return
Moocher: one who sponges, begs, or takes surreptitiously (steals)
Deadbeat: one who persistently fails to pay personal debts or expenses
A Drag: someone or something that makes action or progress slower or more difficult
Used in a sentence: "Single motherhood is a breeding ground for parasites, leeches, moochers, deadbeats, and is a drag on society as a whole."
Sorry. I later saw the last 1/2 of your question. My answer would not apply in your case. However, I leave it for those who are not familiar with the other sense of the word.

You can bring this concept to a real plane, with some humour, suggesting on your signature, for example, that you can be called anytime, anyday, 24 hours on day, 7 days on a week, even on weekends. This means full support to me. No lack. Specially if you really know they will never call you after friday 9:00 PM.
