Otley Town Council funds Citizens Advice Bureau sessions
8:00am Tuesday 5th March 2013 in News
Otley Town Council is teaming up with the Citizens Advice Bureau to help people who will be hit by changes to welfare benefits.
The council has already funded two 13-week advice sessions at the CAB offices to help residents struggling with rising fuel and heating costs.
Now it has allocated £4,000 to fund further sessions to support anyone affected by the benefits changes being brought in by the Government.
Otley CAB co-ordinator Ailsa Bearpark said: “ With rising fuel costs and changes to the benefits system on the horizon, we are teaming up to ensure our community is given the best possible support in these challenging circumstances.
The CAB advice sessions will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm from September until the end of March, 2014.
