From 2013, the benefits available and the way they are paid is changing. This is due to the Government’s welfare reform agenda.
These changes could affect all working age residents, whether they are in or out of work.
There will be lots of people who may be worried about the changes and might want further information or support. Moneywise has organised a series of roadshows across Redcar and Cleveland. Moneywise is made up of lots of advice agencies across Redcar & Cleveland, including the Council, Coast & Country Housing, Citizens Advice Bureau.
Staff from various organisations that offer benefits and money advice will be on hand to answer any questions regarding the forthcoming changes.
The first roadshow will take place on Saturday 3 November from 9am-3pm on Redcar High Street (near Redcar clock). Everyone is welcome to pop in for a chat.
In the coming weeks, further roadshows will be held across the Borough. Details for these will be available on www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk and will be advertised locally.
