A charity working to help those most in need has been boosted by £121,000 from Harrow Council.
Harrow’s Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB), based in Station Road, Harrow, which offers to aid people in legal, economic or social problems, was given the cash by the authority which will fund its work for 15 months.
Councillor Sachin Shah, Labour ’s cabinet member for finance, visited the CAB last week.
He said: “Despite huge and unnecessary cuts of £75million over the next four years from the national government we’re keeping our promise to prioritise those in need.
“My visit convinced me, more than ever, that we are spending this money wisely on our residents, who need a place to turn in difficult times.”
During the visit, Mr Shah was told by staff that visits by those needing help had increased in the past few years.
He added: “I’m confident the CAB will be helping our most vulnerable residents for years to come, as we work with residents to help them cope with the cost of living crisis.”
