Meetings are held bi-monthly and the AGM is held in September



Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:


I am a Nominative Trustee on the Management Board.


The main purpose of this organisation is to provide free independent, confidential and impartial advice to people to help them deal with problems they face on a day to day basis.  These include Debt, Benefits, Employment, Housing and relationship breakdowns.


A crucial part of the service is to help disadvantaged people in the community who need a helping hand to improve their situation.
