The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has welcomed the Community Advice Causeway team to a reception in Cloonavin to mark their 50th anniversary.
Over the last five decades, the charity has remained a constant reassuring presence for many residents of the Borough, providing free and confidential advice on a range of subjects.
Reflecting on its success through the years, the Mayor, Councillor Ivor Wallace said: “I want to congratulate Community Advice Causeway as it reaches this significant milestone and pay tribute to the staff and volunteers for all they have done to support those in need through the years.
“Council is pleased to work closely with Community Advice Causeway, and we are fortunate to have its expertise and professionalism which has helped countless individuals and families who live in Causeway Coast and Glens.
“They have worked tirelessly in the most challenging of times, most notably during the recent pandemic and subsequently the cost-of-living crisis, and they will continue to be there when people are at their most vulnerable.”
Samantha Boswell, Community Advice Causeway Chief Officer added: “As a charity providing free, independent advice we are delighted to receive this endorsement from the Mayor to mark our 50th anniversary. Our team worked tirelessly during the pandemic to ensure continuity of service for everyone.
“At a time when we are needed more than ever, we will continue to deliver our service to anyone who needs us, across the Borough. We are very grateful for the continued support that we receive from Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and from our community.”
Community Advice Causeway’s advisors can help people resolve their debt, benefits, benefit appeals, housing, legal and courts, discrimination, employment, immigration, consumer and other problems.
