We host weekly drop-in advice sessions run by RMBC Revenue & Benefits team who offer support to local residents about Council Benefits and the payment of Council Tax.

The sessions alternate on a fortnightly basis and are held on a Wednesday between 12:30pm – 1:30pm. No appointment is necessary and residents are encouraged to get help before it is too late.
