Citizens Advice South Lincs

 Citizens Advice South Lincolnshire (CASL) have launched a new research pilot to see if people in the South Lincolnshire area can access cash when they wish to. Recent research by Which? magazine indicates that the number of cash machines in the UK are falling and some rural areas are losing access to banks.

 

We invite you to take part in a short survey by clicking HERE

 A link to the survey  will also be shared across CASL’s Facebook and Twitter pages.  The research aims to get a picture of whether access to cash is an issue and what the consequences are for local residents. The survey will run for three months (March to June 2020)

Citizens Advice South Lincolnshire is currently not offering a face-to-face service until further notice.  However, you can still speak to trained assessors/advisers via email or webchat at www.citizensadvice.org.uk or you can call Adviceline on 0344 111 444.

Stamford Street Pastors

 

Stamford Street Pastors launched in 2011 and has continued to grow with our volunteers becoming familiar faces on the streets of the town on a Saturday night.

Our volunteers come from a range of denominations and churches across the town. All committed to helping, listening and caring to those who find themselves in vulnerable positions late on a Saturday night.

Since Street Pastors began patrolling Stamford has seen a reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour. We work in partnership with the Police, Local Authority, Town Council and others such as the late-night pubs and clubs.

Appreciation for the work we do is unanimous and we welcome hearing from anyone we have helped, or who is interested in being involved either through volunteering or financial donations.

Do get in touch if you’d like to find out more. We’d love to hear from you. For more details click HERE
