Free advice event for Stockton Borough residents

Thursday, April 13, 2017

PEOPLE living across Stockton Borough are invited to a free advice event next week.

Between Tuesday 18 April and Friday 21 April a pop-up shop in Billingham Town Centre will offer independent and confidential guidance relating to money, welfare benefits, fuel, energy, community protection as well as employment and training.

‘Just Ask…Billingham Advice Week’ has been arranged by the Northern Locality Forum and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in partnership with a range of agencies including Stockton & District Advice and Information Service and Thirteen Housing Group.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Access, Communities and Community Safety, Councillor Steve Nelson, said: “We know many families could benefit from speaking to these organisations and that by doing so they could pick up some tips on how to better maximise their family’s income.

“This event has been arranged to raise awareness of the services available to all our residents so they know where they can seek guidance both now and in the future.”

The pop-up shop will be based at Unit 53, Queensway, Billingham Town Centre.

For more information about the event please email [email protected] or call 01642 526032.
