Coffee and chat advice sessions

Join us for a coffee and a chat

BetterOff coffee and chat sessions - Dates below video

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 library on the dates 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 to health and wellbeing.

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, we can help.
