ACHA Welfare Rights Service
ACHA are delivering a welfare rights service for all Argyll Community Housing Association’s tenants. Bute Advice Centre was awarded the contract to deliver services across Bute & Cowal. Part of their funding from Peoples and Communities Fund, require us to engage with the wider community and with community projects to convey our message to all ACHA tenants of the service we offer. Bute Advice Centre aim to do this throughout the project by:-
Providing a one-to-one confidential welfare rights service to all tenants. The principal aim of our project is to maximise income and offer help and advice with regards to benefits available for the sick and disabled, retired, those in or out of work, families, young people and carers;
Bute Advice would like to do a short presentation to community groups/organisations in the hope that they can equip groups to identify and signpost service users to ACHA.
