As well as working on a one to one basis with clients, BREATHE will also be running small group sessions aimed at educating professionals and members of the public on welfare advice matters. The model we are using is based on empowering individuals, and the community, so that they feel better able to deal with issues themselves. As part of this approach the service will also be actively recruiting and training volunteers from the local community and surrounding areas.
Breathe Advice and Advocacy Service have been included in the LASA advice local directory, which is a nationwide directory of local, free sources of quality advice and information on a variety of issues. Clients can search the directory by both advice area and locality and be directed to the providers website for further information on how this can be accessed. For more details see https://advicelocal.uk/
The BREATHE Advice and Advocacy service opening and closing times are from Mon - Thurs 10:00 -15:00.
