Councillors are expected to give the green light to almost £180,000 in funding to allow Erewash residents access to vital services provided by the Derbyshire District Citizens Advice Bureau.

At a meeting of the Council’s Executive on Tuesday 2 April a proposal to continue financial support over the next three years for the service will be considered.

The Citizens Advice Bureau provides an information life-line for many people seeking independent advice. It has an office in Heanor Road in Ilkeston and an outreach service in Long Eaton.

It provides a free, impartial, and confidential service dealing with issues such as debt advice, housing, education, immigration, health and well-being, as well as supporting older people, ensuring fair access to benefits entitlement and assisting with housing.
