‘CONFIDENTIAL, impartial and independent’ help will be available at a Citizens’ Advice Bureau branch moving to a new home in Sheffield.

South East Sheffield Citizens Advice Bureau is moving its Woodhouse outreach bureau and main operation at Mosborough to Sheffield Council’s area housing office on Chapel Street.

Jane Osbaldiston, SESCAB manager, said: “We are delighted to be moving to our new premises at Woodhouse where we will continue to provide a high quality advice service for the community.

“Given the pending Government welfare reform measures demand for our service is extremely high, therefore it is important that the new service is up and running as quickly as possible.”

She added that the move is set to take place mid June and details of the bureau’s opening times will be widely published nearer the time of moving.

Coun Harry Harpham, Sheffield Council cabinet member for housing, said: “Over the past few years, fewer council tenants have been using our Woodhouse office.

“We want to make sure that local offices are used for local needs, and consultation showed that people wanted more than just housing advice at Woodhouse.

“Citizens’ Advice provide an invaluable service to our community, especially in these challenging times.”

Other citizens’ advice bureau branches are on London Road, Osbourne Road and Spital Hill.
