Afternoon tea coupled with a ‘Money Matters’ advice session organised by WDH provided food for thought in Knottingley.
People who regularly attend weekly Tuesday Club get-togethers to enjoy sausage rolls and sandwiches at the Old Quarry Adventure Playground were also able to benefit from bite-sized facts about a range of services designed to improve their lives.
Leaflets and advice about budgeting, saving money on energy bills and accessing health and social care information were available via WDH’s Cash Wise and Care Link services, Leeds City Credit Union and South West Yorkshire NHS.
WDH Tenant Involvement Officer Natalie Guy thanked Adventure Playground Centre Manager Holly Corbett for her help in staging the advice session.
Natalie said: “The ‘Money Matters’ session was very successful and we are looking to hold similar events throughout the Pontefract and Knottingley area.”
Holly added: “We have developed strong relationships with agencies and have become a gateway for them to speak with residents.”
