People can now get help and advice about debt, benefits and health from a new service launched across Lincolnshire.

Lincs2Advice is a free, impartial and confidential service bringing together more than 200 organisations such as Citizens Advice Bureau, Age UK and Lincolnshire Credit Union.

The service is available by telephone or website where a team of specially trained coordinators can help people with a range of issues from volunteering and job hunting to budgeting and energy saving.

A Lincs2Advice spokesman said: “Thanks to Big Lottery funding, Lincolnshire residents can now access advice, information and support agencies from across the county in one place.

“Lincs2Advice will help people find the best placed advice provider quickly and easily to assist with everything from health and care through to money and work.

“There is also a free Helping You Manage Your Money service, which is open to everyone, to help people identify areas where money can be saved.

“The service includes how to cope on a tight budget and advice on what bills should be paid as a priority.”

Lincs2Advice can be reached on 0844 257 0042 or visit www.lincs2advice.org.uk
