Debt support, legal guidance, health advice and other services been brought together to make it easier for Sheffield residents to get the help they need.
Newly-launched Sheffield Citizens Advice and Law Centre aims to bridge the inequality gap by ensuring some of the most vulnerable people across the city get the same service, no matter where they live.
The idea supports the work of the Fairness Commission and the city council’s bid to make Sheffield the fairest city in Britain.
Citizens’ advice bureaus from Hillsborough, Firth Park and the south east of the city are among the 12 groups which have signed up. Others include Sheffield Mental Health and Deaf Advice.
Ian Drayton, chair of Sheffield Citizens Advice, said: “Most people who use advice centres should not notice any great difference, with advice being delivered from the same offices across the city. But these changes should mean more money gets to the front line and everyone receives the same high quality of advice.”
The main office is based on Duke Street, city centre.
Sheffield Council leader Julie Dore said: “Access to excellent, high quality advice, whoever you are, wherever you live, is invaluable.”
