Help is on hand for residents of Stoke Gifford and the wider Bristol North Fringe who are seeking information and advice on a wide range of issues following the news that Citizens Advice South Gloucestershire has started drop-in advice sessions at a new venue in the area.

Citizens Advice provides advice and support on life’s most common problems, and all the advice given is free, independent and impartial.

Yvonne Parks of Citizens Advice South Gloucestershire said:

“Our goal is to help everyone find a way forward, whatever problem they face. People come to us with all sorts of issues such as money, benefits, housing, family or employment problems.”

Anyone can go along to the drop-in sessions at The Stokes (Youth and Community Centre), which is located next to Little Stoke Primary School, Little Stoke Lane, Little Stoke BS34 6HY.

The sessions, which started at the end of April, are held every second and fourth Friday of the month, from 10am to 12pm.

Yvonne (pictured) said:

“No appointment is necessary, so just come along. An experienced and qualified advice worker will be there to help.”

The sessions in Stoke Gifford are being supported by local South Gloucestershire ward councillors through the Member Awarded Funding scheme and will be reviewed in 12 months’ time.

• Citizens Advice also holds drop-in sessions at the Jubilee Centre, Bradley Stoke, from 10am to 12pm every Wednesday.
