A NEW service providing financial, legal and housing advice is coming to a Herefordshire town.

Citizens Advice Herefordshire (CAH) has announced it will be providing a new service in Kington.

The advice sessions will take place at the Old Police Station in Market Hall Street.

Citizens Advice said the sessions will provide a free, independent and confidential advice on issues such as debt, benefits, housing and family issues.

Sonya Gregory, advice services manager for CAH, said the services were particularly important at the moment.

"Many people have found themselves facing difficult problems due to financial and social consequences of the current Covid19 crisis and not sure where to turn to," she said.

"Countywide outreach centres are invaluable for meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in the community."

Ms Gregory said such centres were important for those who cannot access current CAH services in Hereford.

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