Causeway Advice Consortium have successfully secured a new three year contract to provide advice services to local residents in the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area.

Led by Citizens Advice Causeway and in partnership with Limavady Community Development Initiative, the consortium operates a free service to the public offering impartial and confidential advice on issues such as debt, employment, consumer issues, tax and housing.

Speaking about the new contract, the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Brenda Chivers, said: “We are delighted to be in a position to award a contract to Causeway Advice Consortium to provide this important local service. People can find themselves facing all sorts of problems and to know that there is free and confidential help out there is of much reassurance. We know that issues surrounding welfare benefits are of particular concern at present. The staff and volunteers in the advice organisations provide an invaluable service and I would urge local residents to lift the phone or call into their local advice centre.”
