A new service offering advice out in the community has been launched in the Selby District.
Citizens Advice Mid-North Yorkshire’s Outreach Advice Van is now visiting venues across the district following the success of a pilot scheme in Hambleton and Richmondshire which has now helped over 500 people.
An experienced Citizens Advice adviser is on hand to give information to residents who are currently unable to visit our offices and the charity has also invited partner organisations such as Warm and Well in North Yorkshire to come along.
Carol Shreeve, CEO of Citizens Advice Mid-North Yorkshire, said: “Several of our hardworking volunteers have been trained to provide the service and, in these difficult times when access to our offices is only just opening up, we can start a new service safely in the open air.
We are keen to get back into the areas where, pre-pandemic, we used to run Outreach services but also to look at other areas where there is a need for our services.”
The van will be in Sherburn in Elmet outside the Eversley Park Centre on the following dates:
Thursday 9th September, 10-2pm
Thursday 14th October, 10-2pm
Thursday 11th November, 10-2pm
