New ad­vice web­site for bor­ough

Wilmslow Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A PROJECT set up to help peo­ple get in­for­ma­tion on a range of is­sues has launched a new ad­vice web­site.

The web­site by Ad­vice Cheshire East is a way for res­i­dents to get ad­vice quickly on is­sues such as tax, health, so­cial care and legal is­sues.

Ad­vice Cheshire East (ACE) is the name given to a net­work of ad­vice providers in the bor­ough. A project called Cheshire East Co­or­di­nated Ad­vice Project (CE­CAP) - set up with Na­tional Lot­tery fund­ing to trans­form ad­vice ser­vices in Cheshire East - helped launch the web­site for peo­ple to ac­cess in­for­ma­tion with­out hav­ing to book ap­point­ments with Cit­i­zen’s Ad­vice Bureau and other or­gan­i­sa­tions.

Alice Tay­lor, project as­sis­tant for CE­CAP, said: “The web­site aims to help peo­ple help them­selves.

“It’s a bril­liant re­source which takes you straight to the in­for­ma­tion that you need from trusted sources.”

For in­for­ma­tion go to ad­vicece.org.uk. The CE­CAP project is cur­rently main­tain­ing the site, or con­tact the project team on 01625 430 217 or email info@ ce­cap.org.uk.
