Advice and Support
The Moneywise service has been set up to help and support residents of Redcar and Cleveland and offers a range of free advice and support service but primarily focus on welfare benefits, debt, home energy and savings.
Moneywise is made up of a number of different organisations who operate within Redcar and Cleveland. This includes the Welfare Rights Unit, Citizens Advice Bureau and Coast and Country Housing as well as many other partner organisations.
Moneywise has been developed to raise awareness of the free advice that is available to residents in this Borough on money related issues including the changes to benefits through Government's on-going Welfare Reform program. Many changes have already occurred such as the removal of Housing Benefit for Spare Rooms (known popularly as the 'Bedroom Tax') but the program continues and many more changes will be introduced in the coming years and will affect thousands of people throughout the Borough.
You can also find advice and support through the Citizens Advice Bureau.
