Drop-in sessions with specialist advisors from Citizens Advice Gateshead team will begin tomorrow and are set to continue to take place every Wednesday between the same times going forward.

Colleagues will be able to nip-in and see advisors for advice around issues such as finance and debt, energy and utilities, housing and accommodation, welfare benefits and in-work benefits, illness and disability, legal advice and issues, immigration and more!

Advisors will be able to provide support, signposting and information around issues, and may also arrange to get back in touch with you with further assistance thereafter. 

Discussion is also underway to bring a monthly drop-in session to Bensham, but we would like to remind all colleagues that they can also make use of our partnership with Citizens Advice at any time by accessing our priority service on 0191 490 4231 (please leave a voicemail if unanswered) or via e-mail.

We’d like to thank the Citizens Advice Gateshead team for their ongoing support. You can find out more about their services in our latest newsletter, or over on their dedicated balancegateshead.com webpage, where we also host their monthly Gateshead Health staff bulletins.
