Energy Crisis leads to Citizen Advice Service in Hebden Bridge
Monday, 25 October 2021
In response to the ongoing energy crisis an appointment only Citizen Advice service, funded by Hebden Royd Town Council, will launch in Hebden Bridge on Wednesday 3 November in addition to the Thursday drop-in sessions at Mytholmroyd Community Centre.
The appointment only sessions will take place at Hebden Bridge Town Hall in the Greenwood Room every Wednesday from 10am – 1pm.
Councillor Rob Freeth, Mayor of Hebden Royd commented, “We’re here for you this winter. We want to reassure local residents that we are doing everything we can to support you through these challenging times and that expert advice, if needed, is readily available on your doorstep.”
Caroline Jones, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice in Calderdale, said, “We know this is going to be a difficult winter for low-income households and we urge Hebden Royd residents experiencing financial difficulties to reach out.”
Caroline added, “Appointments last an hour and must be booked with us in advance. These appointments are more in-depth and enable our Adviser to explore your options with you in more detail.”
Appointments for the new appointment-only Hebden Bridge service can be booked via the Calderdale Citizen Advice Bureau on 0808 2787879. The phone is available 9.30am to 1pm Monday to Friday and Tuesday 4pm to 5.30pm.
A drop-in session is also available for Hebden Royd residents between the hours of 10am and 1pm every Thursday at Mytholmroyd Community Centre, providing free, confidential, impartial and independent advice.
