CIT­I­ZENS IN­FOR­MA­TION BUS HIT­TING THE ROAD

Bray People - - NEWS -

AS part of En­ti­tle­ments Aware­ness Week, the Cit­i­zens In­for­ma­tion Bus will be hit­ting the road and bring­ing a mo­bile in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice ser­vice di­rect to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties

The bus will be trav­el­ling around the county from this com­ing Fri­day, June 24, un­til the fol­low­ing Fri­day, July 1, to reach out to peo­ple who may not nor­mally have easy ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion ser­vices.

Any­body can come on board to get free and con­fi­den­tial in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice on their rights and en­ti­tle­ments from skilled in­for­ma­tion providers from Bray Cit­i­zens In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre and staff from Bray Area Part­ner­ship’s Lo­cal Em­ploy­ment Ser­vice and Arklow MABS in se­lected lo­ca­tions.

The first port of call for the bus, which is fully ac­ces­si­ble, will be Lidl in Bray this Fri­day, June 24, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

On Mon­day, June 27, the bus will be at the Square in Balt­in­glass from 9.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Tues­day, June 28, it will be at Bray Civic Cen­tre from 9 a.m. to noon and at Tesco in Grey­stones from 2 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.

The two stops on Wed­nes­day, June 29, will be St An­thony’s Church in Kil­coole from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and Bray Civic Cen­tre from 1.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. On Thurs­day, June 30, the bus will be at Lidl in Grey­stones from 8 a.m. un­til noon and the last stop will be on Fri­day, July 1, at Main Street Aughrim (op­po­site the garda sta­tion) from 10 a.m. to noon.

‘Be­cause of on­go­ing changes to ser­vices and schemes it’s vi­tal that peo­ple can get in­for­ma­tion on their rights and en­ti­tle­ments,’ said Martina Cronin from County Wick­low Cit­i­zens In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice. ‘Peo­ple’s needs have be­come more com­plex in ar­eas such as per­sonal fi­nance, debt, em­ploy­ment rights, un­em­ploy­ment and ac­cess to ser­vices, so we hope as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble will take ad­van­tage of this op­por­tu­nity.’
