Local residents living in Chris Elmore MP’s Ogmore constituency were able to speak one-to-one with over 20 different organisations on Friday at his first Money Management Advice Day.
Following on from the successful annual Funding Advice Day he hosts with Huw Irranca-Davies AM, the Ogmore MP brought together a range of different organisations, including the Job Centre, BAVO and Welsh Water to give constituents advice on a variety of financial matters.
The event took place at the Gilfach Goch Community Association and was open to all constituents from the Bridgend County Borough and Rhondda Cynon Taf sides of Chris’ constituency.
From finding work, accessing welfare benefits, to debt management, a huge swathe of support options and other opportunities were available to those who attended.
Speaking after the event, Chris Elmore MP said:
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the local residents who attended today. It’s been really fantastic to see constituents gaining one-to-one advice from a wealth of different organisations.
“A big thank you also to all of the organisations who have kindly agreed to attend today. I know some really useful conversations have been had and I and my constituents really appreciate it.”
