New CMA Centre in Ashington, - Welcome!

This week we welcome Seaton Hirst Community Money Advice to the CMA network. Based in Ashington, Northumberland, the centre will be working alongside Together Newcastle, NCEAT and Wansbeck Valley foodbank to support those in the community who are struggling with indebtedness. The parish of Seaton Hirst is among the most deprived in the country, with 39% of households in the Hirst ward experiencing issues of child poverty, and 11,000 adults in Wansbeck recognised as struggling with high levels of indebtedness. We are looking forward to supporting this centre as volunteers are trained to give advice and open to clients in this community with a proud heritage and history.
