Advice Offered To People With Financial Struggles

Tuesday August 12 2014




A POP-UP shop is coming to the town centre to offer advice to people who are experiencing financial difficulties.

Officers from the council's welfare rights team will be on hand outside Topshop, on Mayday Green, from 9.30am to 3pm on August 13, 20 and 27.

The experienced team are to offer free, impartial and confidential advice to ensure everyone receives their full entitlement from the social security system.

Coun Jenny Platts, cabinet spokesperson for communities, said: "Claiming the right benefit at the right time can make a huge difference to a person’s circumstances.

"However, for people who are not familiar with the social security system the claim process can be a very difficult and daunting experience. The service is there to help."
