The Royal British Legion will be hosting a new monthly ‘pop in’ advice centre in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council.
Starting on Thursday 18th May, and continuing on the third Thursday of every month, the new advice centre will be hosted at the Charnwood Borough Council offices on Southfield Road between 10am and 12pm.
The new session at the Council will provide the public with the opportunity to drop in and access support being offered by The Royal British Legion. This includes the charity’s welfare services including advice and help with financial support, housing, employment, mental health and wellbeing, independent living and social support.
A spokesperson for The Royal British Legion said: “As a charity we rely on the generosity of businesses and institutions that can offer us a free office or room to host such information and advice hubs and we are very grateful to Charnwood Borough Council. This new venue allows us to host a pop in session that provides accessibility to our advice and information services, as well as providing a hub to the Armed Forces community, past and present, for those wanting to talk to someone about the support we can offer.”
No appointment is necessary to access the Legion’s outreach sessions at the Council offices and other outreach sessions include Loughborough Library on the first Thursday of every month and also at the John Storer House the last Thursday of the month.
