FAIR is a new project which aims to make advice and financial information services more accessible for people over 50.
Support and advice will range from form filling, accessing information online, understanding benefits, including how you could apply, and how to get the best consumer deals such as utilities.
The project is being delivered through a new partnership of 11 local voluntary sector providers led by Citizens Advice Torbay. The partners are: Age UK Torbay, Brixham Does Care, Homemaker South West, Healthwatch Torbay, Mencap, Sanctuary Housing, Torbay Advice Network, YES Brixham Limited, VisualEyes Torbay – formerly Brixham Blind Club and the Crafty Fox Café ‘n’ Hub.
FAIR launched in May and volunteers are being recruited and trained to provide a range of support in their local communities.
