Citizens Advice success at Weston Jobs Fair

 

Our Events Team attended the recent Jobs Fair in Weston-Super-Mare with the purpose of giving information and advice.  This proved to be so successful that we helped 47 people with enquiries in the following areas:

  • Self Employment
  • Tax and pay
  • Child care and Working Tax Credits
  • Travel to work – bus time tables, car share schemes
  • Employment rights including redundancy
  • Money Advice
  • Benefit Advice

We set up self help kiosks for people to look up their own information.  We talked to all the stall holders about how we might be able to help them, their staff and any new recruits and we referred a number of people along to our drop-in session at the Badger Centre to get full advice.  All in all it was a hugely successful day!
