Lottery grant boost for Citizens Advice
Last month Te Awamutu Citizens Advice Bureau received a grant of $5000 from the Lottery Grants Board.
Jessica Brown, the bureau’s office manager says the organisation receives funding from the Lottery Grants Board each year and it is greatly appreciated.
“This funding will help us continue to deliver a high-quality service to the people of Te Awamutu and surrounding areas,” says Jessica. “Our trained volunteer interviewers can help people with information on almost any issue including consumer rights, employment issues, finance and tax, benefit entitlements, housing and tenancy and much more.
“No problem is too big or too small.” The Lottery Grants Board distributes profits from Lotto, Instant Kiwi and Daily Keno. They are a major supporter of Citizens Advice Bureaux New Zealand and its 82 member branches.
CABNZ chief executive Kerry Dalton says with Lottery support they can continue providing free, confidential and impartial information, advice, advocacy and support which helps over half a million people nationally every year.
