Welfare Rights Drop In

  • Do you worry about money?
  • Are you concerned you may not be able to pay your next bill?

If you experience any of these concerns or anything similar, why not pop in and speak to the Welfare Rights Team, who will be at Ashby Children’s Centre on Monday 14 October between 9:30am and 4pm.

The Welfare Rights Team can help with claiming benefits, sorting debt issues, housing and much more.
