South Down SDLP MLA Seán Rogers and local Councillor Brian Quinn recently attended the Sea Shell Centre in Kilkeel to promote “Money Week”. Speaking to Newry Times, Rogers said, “I attended the Sea Shell Centre in Kilkeel and met with representatives of the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and Debt Advice NI as part of Newry and Mourne Council’s Money Week. “Every Friday the CAB provides an Outreach Service in Kilkeel from 9.30am to 12.30am and every Thursday in Warrenpoint Town Hall from 930am to 1130am. These outreach clinics are very welcome and gives those who feel more isolated access to a valuable service. “We remain in very tight economic times and the pressures associated with financial issues and debt is unfortunately growing so I was pleased to see the joined up approach between CAB and Debt Advice NI. It is vital that those who are experiencing financial stress – share their concerns, as there is a great deal of help available,” he added. Councillor Brian Quinn said, “I welcome this service and would encourage people to avail of it – particularly pensioners and I would urge pensioners as a matter of course to request a benefit entitlement check on an annual basis. “Benefits change, as do people’s circumstances so to ensure you are not missing out – speak to CAB, MARA or make contact with your local SDLP Office where staff will be happy to assist.”
