Workers made redundant in Newtown as a result of the Covid-19 situation and economically are being offered free advice about their pensions.

The Mayor of Newtown, Cllr David Selby, said the Newtown Network had worked with Citizens Advice Powys and Ponthafren to set up the pensions advice service.

"One of the sad consequences of the Laura Ashley redundancies and other job losses within the town is the increasing concern about pensions," he said.

"Many are worried about the future of their pensions and are finding the lack of impartial information worrying and stressful.
"I am delighted that there are free and expert services for those effected available now in Newtown.

This service can provide confidential advise on pensions and other money issues added to the mental and physical support that many need. Call 0333 996 1124 to book an appointment."
