Friday HelpSpace ended 2 October. The day and time clashed with other activities. We will resume soon, probably on Thursdays.
If you are new to this, perhaps uncertain about how anything works, but you have an Internet connection and you are reading this — you are probably a relative beginner, and our Friday HelpSpace is for you.
HelpSpace is our online meeting room that we set up mainly to provide help for people who have a problem they are able to describe. It’s open most of the time.
The regular Friday session is an experimental drop-in event for up to five people who would like to talk to an authorised helper (or to each other) without the rigmarole of making an appointment.
The world of benefits can be a confusing place. If you’ve got questions about Government social support and what you might be entitled to, join a chat session with MRS-Independent Living Advice and Community Worker, Terry Bednall.
Terry has told us …
“This session will be the first of three on Welfare Benefits.
This week, we will focus on post-retirement benefits. I will introduce the series, and then the topics will be pension credit and attendance allowance, each followed by questions and experience sharing.
I may offer my phone number so people can call me for a one-to-one follow up.”
