Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Advice Week 2012

Advice Link 220212

MARK MENZIES is backing Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Advice Week 2012.

The week, designed to ensure that residents across the Fylde coast have access to the best possible free advice, takes place between March 5th to March 9th.

Advice Week, assisted by the Big Lottery Fund, will see sessions taking place across the region to help people with housing, employment, benefit and care issues.

Mr Menzies, Member of Parliament for Fylde, will also be holding a surgery of his own on March 9th.

He said: “Advice Week is a tremendous idea and I am sure people will seize the opportunity to look for help.

“There are a number of terrific organisations like Citizens Advice Bureau, Advice Link, the Welfare Rights Service, Age UK, Care and Repair, Disability First and Help Direct involved with MPs also keen to assist.

“Free advice is available and people should not suffer in silence.”

All the organisations listed will be available at various times and appointments and home visits may be available where needed.

Pam Cochrane Advice Link Coordinator added: “This annual event is possible thanks to The Big Lottery Fund and the goodwill and expertise of local advice agencies reaching out to local people.

“Even if you cannot get along to an appointment or drop in please get in touch and the Network will make sure you get access to the advice you need.”
