The campaign will take place in venues across the town with the next session taking place in Newport Community Hub, Newport Settlement, St Paul’s Road, Middlesbrough, TS1 5NQ from Tuesday 5th January 2016 (details off times and venues are attached). There will also be telephone advice available throughout the campaign for those who are unable to attend face to face meetings.
The project is about explaining benefits and making sure people know what they are entitled to. The story that too often goes untold about welfare is of the billions of pounds that go unclaimed every year by those who would be assisted by it.
The Financial Inclusion Group feels that at a time when a lot of people are struggling financially, it is important that they claim all of the benefits to which they are entitled. The benefits system can be complicated, and the aim of the campaign is to help people through it effectively.
