Income Maximisation & Debt Advice for Families in Fuel Poverty
The project will fund a rural advice worker who will provide equality of access to advice, information and advocacy service to residents in rural areas. The advice worker will inform and assist people living in these areas in accessing specialist advice and support to ensure they are aware of any financial benefits available to them and to help in making appropriate applications and in dealing with the benefit agencies. The project aims to improve the quality of life of disadvantaged and socially isolated families and individuals.
