Advice sessions

Join us for a coffee and a chatBetterOff coffee and chat sessions

Are you struggling with money? Need help with rent or council tax? Don't know where to turn? Why not come along to one of our BetterOff coffee and chat sessions. Drop into your local Gateway centre or climb aboard our Health Improvement bus which is out and about this summer  - dates for both below.

We might not be able to solve all your money problems but this is a starting point for you to get the help you need. Support is available on a wide range of issues from benefits, debt, financial assistance, housing, health and wellbeing.

No appointment necessary, just call in at a time that suits you between 10.30am and 3.30pm.

Whether you have questions about Universal Credit, where to turn in a financial emergency, how to make your money go further, stop smoking or get online, advice will be available from our BetterOff partners
