A free service to help people get on top of their finances has been launched.

Money Box was set up between West Lindsey District Council and Acis Group.

It offers people face-to-face advice on their finances to improve money management across the district.

Lucy Picksley, resident involvement officer for Acis Group, reassured residents all issues are discussed in strict confidence.

“We want to ensure everyone has access to appropriate advice about financial services and products,” she said.

“We want to help people manage their money, plan for the future and deal with financial distress.”

The scheme will continue to run on the first and third Friday of every month.

The next session is tomorrow (Friday) from 1pm to 3pm at Park Springs Community Centre in Gainsborough.
