It has been two years since Citizens Advice Lindsey launched its Rural Advice Service with funding from the Big Lottery Fund, Reaching Communities offering Generalist and Specialist Advice to rural communities throughout West Lindsey. With drop-in sessions on offer at Binbrook, Caistor, Hemswell Cliff, Market Rasen, Saxilby, Scotter, Welton and Wragby, Citizens Advice Lindsey have advised over 470 new clients about approximately 1,070 issues.
The service is now expanding to Willingham By Stow, where advice sessions will be offered at Willingham Surgery on the 2nd Friday of the month from 1 May 2018.
The service is free, confidential and open to everyone in the community. Staff are trained to advise on virtually any issue, including: welfare benefits, money/credit problems, employment, consumer rights, housing, neighbourhood disputes, education, healthcare, immigration/residency queries, human rights, family and personal issues.
Citizens Advice Lindsey will arm you with all the facts and possible outcomes of different options. That way you can make the decision that’s right for you. If needed, we can also offer practical support such as help with filling forms, writing letters or negotiating with a third party.
