Thanks to funding from Elmswell Organisations. There is now a Citizens Advice Outreach in Elmswell.

Posted: 04th October 2016


The Citizens Advice outreach in Elmswell has now ceased so people in Elmswell should contact us for advice.


A new fortnightly Citizens Advice service has been launched today in a Suffolk village. Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk, based in Stowmarket, has come to The Blackbourne in Elmswell to offer residents support and advice.

Carol Eagles, Bureau Manager from Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk said “We are thrilled to be able to offer this new drop in service to the residents and workers of Elmswell and the surrounding villages. We are extremely grateful to Elmswell Parish Council, Elmswell Amenities Association and the Crew at Elmswell Fire station for funding this service.” She continued “we are aware that it is increasingly difficult for rural communities to access services which is why we wanted to come into the community to help anyone who needs advice and support on any issue.”

The free drop-in service is available on the first and third Tuesday of the month between 9.30am – 12.30pm at The Blackbourne Community Centre.

People that attended the service’s launch included David Hawes Elmswell Parish Councillor, Sarah Mansel, Green Party District Councillor for Elmswell and Norton, Jill Wilshaw Conservative Party District Councillor for Bacton and Old Newton, Jean and David Barker from Elmswell Amenities Association, Carol Eagles and Claire Watkins from Citizens Advice Mid Suffolk and members of the fire crew from Elmswell Fire Station.
