Council set to approve provider of key advice services
Proposals for continued investment in welfare benefit, housing, debt and money management and employment advice services are being presented to West Oxfordshire District Council’s Cabinet next week.
At the meeting on Wednesday 18 March, councillors will be asked to approve the award of a contract to Citizens Advice West Oxfordshire to continue providing the district with expert support services.
Cllr Toby Morris, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Resources, said: “We’re committed to supporting those in need across the district and this contract will allow us to offer residents specialised expert advice and support services.
“Each year, Citizens Advice helps millions of people by providing advice, education and support to those in need. The Council provides many core services to residents and by working with organisations that are experts in support services, residents will experience less signposting to other organisations and receive improved first contact support.”
On behalf of West Oxfordshire District Council, Citizens Advice will continue to provide residents with advice and support on a range of issues, from budgeting and financial support to help with application forms or employment guidance.
