Barbara supported national Advice Week (12-18th October 2009) at a meeting in Westminster to raise public awareness of the work of free advice organisations.
Barbara met representatives from advice agencies to talk about the work they are doing to help people struggling during the recession.
“People working for free advice organisations, like the Citizens Advice Bureau and Age Concern Help the Aged, see on a daily basis how the right advice can really change people’s lives. Even people at crisis point can find a tough situation greatly improved if they seek advice sooner rather than later.
“I’m pleased to support national Advice Week to highlight the free help that is available for people in Worsley constituency who may be finding things difficult during the recession. I hope constituents who need help will get in touch with one of the many local advice charities to see what support is available.”
Worsley constituents can find details of local advice organisations by visiting the Salford Citizen’s Advice Bureau website or the Wigan Citizen’s Advice Bureau website.
