Whittlesey Town Council has agreed to fund the outreach of Citizens Advice Rural Cambs in the town.

“We want to ensure this vital service can continue to operate and benefit the residents of Whittlesey, Eastrea, Coates, Turves and Pondersbridge.

“We would also like to take this opportunity of thanking the town council publicly for their commitment to supporting the service allowing the residents of Whittlesey parish to continue having access to a face-to-face Citizens Advice service.”

The Citizens Advice outreach service in Whittlesey operates on a Friday morning from 9.30am to 12.30pm at the library, offering information, support, help and advice in a variety of subjects including benefits, debt, employment and housing. They also have access to specialists in other areas. Follow up advice appointments can be arranged where necessary.

Their advice line telephone service operates Monday to Friday 9.30am to 3.30pm and is contactable on 0344 245 1292. There are also options available for those who do not have transport or access to the service at the library.
