RESIDENTS will be given more help to solve money worries after two organisations teamed up.

A new scheme, launched by the Citizens Advice Bureau, aims to help people with employment, money problems, benefits and housing.

Castle Point, Rochford and Rayleigh Citizens Advice Bureau have brought in the initiative called Advice 360.

Funded by the Big Lottery’s Advice Transition Fund, it will give people expert advice to help solve problems.

Christine Neville, of Castle Point CAB, said: “We want to ensure clients throughout both areas continue to receive high quality advice.

By working in partnership with other providers, Advice 360 will aim to make a difference to people’s lives by becoming more efficient and effective, we will reduce duplication and ensure it is easy and stress free whichever partner agency they choose to contact.”

MPs Rebecca Harris, James Duddridge, and Mark Francois attended the launch of the scheme last week.

Mrs Harris added: “They already do great work, offering very helpful advice and I am sure this new project will make the quality of the advice they provide even better.”
