Mobile Advice Units Take Citizens Advice to Sandwell’s Communities

Posted on 13th Oct 2021

Citizens Advice Sandwell & Walsall were awarded a £22,848 Enhancing Community Support grant from the Trust in October 2021. The grant will fund the operating costs of a mobile advice unit called CASPER (Citizens Advice Supporting Peoples Economic Recovery) ensuring money and energy advice services can be delivered in the heart of Walsall.

Closing doors in the pandemic

Citizens Advice  Sandwell & Walsall normally give all sorts of advice to all sorts of people, but when the pandemic struck, they had to close their doors.

They were still able to help lots of people with benefits, debt, employment, consumer and money issues during such strange and difficult times, but this had to be by phone or webchat, and they knew that did not suit everyone.
