Since July 2003, advisors have seen 324 people and helped at least half to claim extra benefits totalling almost £240,000. Forty-six per cent of respondents questioned said that they felt less anxious or worried after seeing the advisor and 70 per cent felt better discussing these matters with an advisor rather than a GP. Advisor Gloria Hill believes that another big advantage of the service is that it is close to home. Many elderly people or parents with young children find it difficult to get to the nearest Citizens Advice Bureau or Advice Centre and there is often a long wait on a first-come first-served basis.

The Newham Story celebrates the borough’s journey from Victorian times up to the modern era. It explores the history of Newham’s people and places and how they have changed over time. In the first of a three-part series of Secret Newham specials, we focus on the Victorian era and in particular North Woolwich Station and how it changed the face of the borough. Now known as North Woolwich Old Station Museum, those alighting trains in 1847 would have a hard time recognising the current building in its urban setting. click here for details : 4 Welsh Hotels Enact Conveyancing Melbourne
