Shoppers in Margate can find out whether they're getting the benefits that they're entitled to at two special roadshows being held over the next couple of weeks.
Thanet Council's Benefits team will be in Somerfield in College Walk on the mornings of Monday 14 and Tuesday 22 August between 8.30 a.m. and 1.00 p.m.
They will be offering advice on the different types of benefit available, including Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit, and giving out information and application packs to shoppers.
Cllr. Zita Wiltshire, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Customer Services, said: "It's vital that everyone who should be receiving some form of benefit is getting exactly what they're entitled to. We appreciate that people may not realise that help is available for them and that people don't always want to come into the Council offices to discuss their personal details, which is why our officers are heading out into Somerfield, so that they can talk informally to people. I hope that shoppers will take this opportunity to check out the information on offer and find out whether they are entitled to claim any benefits that they are not currently receiving."
