New Citizens Advice Bureau with Urdu service launched in Westfield Children's Centre in West Watford
11:30am Saturday 22nd September 2012 in News
A new residents’ advice service has launched in West Watford that can cater for Urdu speakers.
Watford's Citizens Advice Bureau started its new outreach service in the Westfield Children's Centre, in Croxley View, this week.
The new service has secured funding for the year with a £30,000 grant from Watford Borough Council.
Caron Williams, the Watford bureau manager’s, said: "We realise that it is not always easy for residents to make an appointment to see an advisor at our main office, which is located at the Advice Centre, St. Mary’s Churchyard in central Watford.
"The new centre will be able to provide help and advice for families and individuals on a range of issues, such as benefits, debts, housing, employment and discrimination.
"It will be staffed by an Urdu speaking member of our staff, Umbreen Azhar."
