Benefits advice drop-in sessions to be held for Wealden residents

Wealden residents are invited to attend two drop-in sessions for advice about benefits that are being held in Heathfield on Tuesday and Wednesday 13 and 14 December.


Residents can meet with members of Wealden District Council’s Benefits Team for advice on support that may be available to them, such as reduction in Council Tax or additional financial support to help with cost of living pressures.


It follows on from previous similar events held by the council’s team in Hailsham and Uckfield.


The events are at Parish Meeting Room, High Street, Heathfield and Waldron Parish Council on Tuesday 13 December from 9.30am-3pm; and on Wednesday 14 December  in the Ian Price Room, Sheepsetting Lane, Heathfield Community Centre, between 9am-1pm.


Councillor Neil Waller, Wealden’s portfolio holder for Benefits, said, “I am delighted that the council is hosting more sessions on benefits advice. The previous sessions have highlighted how beneficial the advice given is and have supported residents to claim what they are eligible to receive.


“I hope that many more residents take advantage of this opportunity to visit the benefits team in Heathfield.”
