Poorest areas funding for money and housing advice

The Welsh Government is investing £2.4m to provide money and housing advice to Wales' poorest communities.

It says the cash will be used by Citizens Advice Cymru to help and estimated 19,000 people, targeting 36 communities in total.

The money will help those in Wales' poorest communities.

A recent consultation showed that many people are put off seeking advice because of the cost of travelling to information centres.

Many people also were unaware that help was available to them.
