New service will offer free advice on issues


Thanks to Big Lottery funding, residents in the Horncastle News area can now access advice, information and support agencies from across the county in one place from a new service called Lincs2Advice.

The free, impartial and confidential service, which can be accessed by telephone or website, will help residents to find the best placed advice provider quickly and easily.

The service can assist with a diverse range of issues from health and care through to money and work.

More than 200 organisations from across the County including Citizens Advice Bureau, Age UK and Lincolnshire Credit Union are working together in partnership to support people looking for help.

By sharing information, residents can find out who can help them in one place - rather than “going round the houses”.

To access the service, people should telephone the Lincs2Advice team of specially trained coordinators on 0844 257 0042. Alternatively, the can go to the website

Lincs2Advice also offers a free ‘Helping you Manage your Money’ service for

individuals across the County. The service which is open to every one, will help

identify areas where money could be saved such as energy and debt payments,

tips on coping on tight budgets, saving ideas and advice on what bills should be

paid as a priority. Telephone the Lincs2Advice team to make an appointment to

see an advisor in your local area.

Lincs2Advice is part of the Lincolnshire Advice Network whose aim is firmly

focused on enabling people in Lincolnshire to be able to access quality advice

and information when they most need it.
