Advice Day flyer

Independent advice on debt and other finance issues is being laid on for Middlesbrough residents – and it’s completely free.

Middlesbrough Partnership’s Financial Inclusion Group is making sound financial support and advice available to as many people as possible.

The latest in a series of Free Advice Days – open to all members of the community - takes place on Thursday, November 3 from 10am to 2pm in the Charlbury Road Community Centre at Pallister Park.

Caseworkers will be on hand to help people resolve their financial problems – anyone wishing to attend can make an appointment by calling 01642 802284 or drop in on the day.

Middlesbrough Partnership Financial Inclusion Group Chairman John Daniels said: “We’re all feeling the effects of the public sector cuts and domestic budgets are under greater pressure than ever, so it’s essential that people know what they’re entitled to – and that they have access to help when they need it.”

Councillor Julia Rostron, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Community Protection, said: “People need to know where they can turn for sound, impartial advice and that’s exactly what events like the Free Advice Day are all about.

“I’d urge anyone who has a problem, however small, to attend – a pointer in the right direction really can mean the difference between despair and hope.”

Areas covered will include:

  • Financial issues from debt and loans to budgeting and saving
  • Benefit checks and help with claims
  • Employment advice
  • Housing/homelessness
  • Rent and Council Tax arrears
  • Saving money on energy bills
  • Joining a credit union

How to attend

For more information or to make an appointment, call 01642 802284 or simply drop in between 10am and 2pm at Charlbury Road Community Centre at Pallister Park, Middlesbrough TS3 8NH.
