Computershare has donated £5,000 to Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells and District to fund a project that helps people to understand their rights.
The donation will allow the charity further to roll out their ‘Prescribed Advice’ service, in which Citizens Advice advisers are based in GP surgeries and available ‘on the spot’ to support patients with non-medical issues such as debt, money worries, employment and housing.
Andrew Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Computershare Loan Services, said “We are delighted to be able to support Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells and District through our Charity Donation Fund. We’ve been really impressed with their work providing much-needed services, and I hope our donation enables them to make a real difference to many more people’s lives.”
Liz De Villiers, Chief Executive, Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District, said “We are very grateful for the generous donation from Computershare Loan Services. This money will allow us to reach out and help even more people in the Tunbridge Wells and District area who are in need of our support and services.”
Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District is a registered charity which provides free, impartial, universally available services that aim to support local people on a range of issues and aims to empower people to act on the challenges they face and turn their lives around. Last year the charity helped 5,510 people.
Computershare Loan Services have committed to donating up to £5,000 every quarter to good causes from its Charity Donations Fund, which is designed to support those who are experiencing money issues and prevent financial hardship.
