We are pleased to announce that Citizens Advice Fareham recently received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, which has enabled us to provide a caseworker service for our clients. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.
As a result of the current pandemic we are seeing an increasing number of clients with complex cases that cannot be resolved in one or two meetings. Having designated caseworkers means we can help our community as effectively as possible in these uncertain times.
This funding lasts until 31.3.21 but we are actively seeking further funding opportunities to ensure that we can carry on providing this vital service.
Our advisors continue to be on hand to deal with our day to day clients who require general advice.
