A HEREFORDSHIRE town now has a new Citizens Advice service to support people through the coronavirus pandemic.

Citizens Advice Herefordshire has worked with The Hope Family Centre and Bromyard and Winslow Town Council have teamed up to introduce the service to the market town.

The new service will help meet the aims of both Citizens Advice Herefordshire and The Hope Centre to provide help and support by making a difference and improving the lives of people in Bromyard.

Sonya Gregory, advice services manager for Citizens Advice Herefordshire, said: “Advice services are particularly important at the moment, as many people have found themselves facing difficult problems due to the financial and social consequences of the current Covid-19 crisis and are not sure where to turn to."

Citizens Advice Herefordshire’s advisers will provide free, independent, confidential and impartial advice on a range of issues including debt, benefits, housing and family issues locally that affect all our lives.

Ms Gregory added: “Countywide outreach centres are invaluable for meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in the community, particularly for those who cannot access our services in Hereford city.

"We are committed to developing our services in these areas of the county to ensure more people can get advice”.

The new Citizens Advice Herefordshire Bromyard advice sessions will be available at The Hope Centre in Hereford Road from October 27, made possible with grants from the town council and the Coronavirus Community Support fund.
