Wilmslow Town Council continues to fund Citizens Advice

Citizens Advice Oct 2023

Wilmslow Town Council is continuing its funding of Citizens Advice in Wilmslow, with a grant of £34,651.

They have funded the Citizens Advice service in Wilmslow since September 2012, to enable local people to access face to face independent advice in the town rather than having to travel to Macclesfield to receive the support.

The funding will be used to continue services in Wilmslow for four days per week. In addition to a drop-in service on Monday mornings at the United Reformed Church, Citizens Advice will continue to provide face to face appointments on Tuesday at Oakenclough Family Hub, Wednesday at the United Reformed Church, and Thursday at Wilmslow Parish Hall.

Wilmslow Town Council Chair, Jon Newell, said, "We are pleased to continue our long-standing funding of Citizens Advice in Wilmslow. The service allows residents to access free, confidential and independent advice on matters including employment, benefits, housing and debt without having to leave Wilmslow."

Will McKellar, Chief Officer of Citizens Advice Cheshire North, said, " Now more than ever, local people are asking Citizens Advice for help. Thanks to the support from Wilmslow Town Council, residents can get our help in a number of different venues in the town. Without the Town Council's support, people would have to travel to see Citizens Advice, so this is vital in ensuring that people in Wilmslow get our help when and where they need it."
