Chelmsford City Council’s Mobile Information Centre will be visiting the
Ramsden Heath Christian Growth Centre on the second Monday of each month.
Please pop along if you get the chance and feel free to pass this message on.
The service is free and offers help and advice to some of the most isolated and vulnerable communities within the area to make our services more accessible.
The Council’s Mobile Customer Information Service now visits 15 rural communities around the borough where public transport is perhaps less frequent, to ensure that residents with the greatest need for advice and support, such as the elderly, young families and those with mobility requirements, can access information and advice about Council services locally.
A range of enquiries are covered, including:
· advice on how to seek help with housing benefit or Council Tax
· reporting environmental problems
· FREE replacement recycling sacks and dog waste bags
· providing information on leisure, tourism, local issues and much more
Many of the visits are attended by partner organisations to promote or deliver their service. These include Essex Police, who have been utilising the sessions to hold some of their beat surgeries and the Community Liaison Officer from Essex Fire & Rescue Service to promote fire safety in the home.
Consequent visits to Ramsden Heath will be on the second Monday of each month.
