Council sets up advice service

Advice is available
Advice is available

A new advice service has been launched by Angus Council to support social housing tenants who are struggling financially.

Due to benefit changes and welfare reforms, there has been an increased demand for advice, information and social housing in Angus.

The council’s housing and welfare rights services have gained funding from the Scottish Legal Aid Board’s Making Advice Work initiative to introduce the Angus Welfare Reform Advice Project (WRAP)

Tenants will be helped to deal with debt and financial problems to enable them to sustain their tenancies and, if necessary, given help to explore other housing options.
