We have been working with Citizens Advice Wrexham (CAW) to safeguard their valuable services that are provided to the public.
And we’re pleased to let you know that we have now reached an agreement with them on the level of funding required from Wrexham Council for the 2019/2020 financial year.
Robert Williams, Chair of the Wrexham CAW said: “I welcome the engagement with the Leader of the Council and the confirmation of the financial support that they are providing to help us provide good quality housing and debt advice. Long may it continue.”
The Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Prichard, said “I am pleased that we are working in true partnership with the Wrexham CAW and that we have jointly agreed a level of financial support for the 2019/20 financial year of £60,000. We recognise and value all the hard work and effort that CAW puts into delivering its service here in Wrexham. Officers will now finalise the written agreement and monitoring arrangements and I would like to thank everyone involved in this matter.”
Gaynor Roberts, Chief Executive of CAW said: “The organisation is appreciative of the support being provided by the Local Authority. As people will know we had to reduce our service for the last 12 months as a result of funding issues, what this will enable us to do is reopen up again providing 3 days drop in service with designation generalist appointments taking place on Tuesdays”
