Citizens Advice to open Wragby rural service

This story is over

Citizens Advice Lindsey will expand its drop in services into Wragby.

From April 17 advice sessions will be offered at Wragby Primary School on the first and third Tuesday of every month.

The Rural Advice Service is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and offers generalist and specialist advice to rural communities throughout West Lindsey.

Residents can access the service for free, confidential advice on virtually any issue, including welfare benefits, credit problems, employment, healthcare, immigration queries, human rights, family and personal issues.

Jenny Barnett, CEO said: “The take-up of the service in the last year shows the definite need for advice services in the community.

“We know that the limitations of public transport in West Lindsey mean that it is difficult for people to travel into Gainsborough if they need to use our service.

“We are building on our work so far and will be delivering more advice sessions in Wragby in order to access as many West Lindsey residents as possible.

“In a changing world, we aim to deliver the advice people need about the issues they face in accessible ways.”

Since starting the service two years ago, Citizens Advice Lindsey has opened drop-ins at Binbrook, Caistor, Hemswell Cliff, Market Rasen, Saxilby, Scotter and Welton.

In that time they have advised over 470 people on approximately 1,070 issues.
