My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our team's fundraising page for the 2019 London Legal sponsored walk. We're taking on 10K for justice on the 17th June.[/p][p]Our team is:[b] Sital Gohil, Frances Kirby, Liam Francis, Rebecca Stacey, Richard Brown, Neha Vaidya, Dolors Vila, Hannah Williams and Zephyr Blofeld[/b][/p][p][url=https://www.westminstercab.org.uk/][b]Citizens Advice Westminster[/b][/url] was one of the very first bureau founded in 1939. From its origins an emergency service during the second World War, we have evolved as a frontline providing essential advice and information services to those living in Westminster and surrounding areas. [/p][p]We help people resolve their legal, money and other problems. We do this by providing advice and information on their rights and responsibilities, as well as influencing local government and other decision-makers to improve their policies and practices which affect local communities. Citizens Advice Westminster, together with the wider Citizens Advice service, uses the evidence of their clients’ problems to campaign for improvements in the laws and services that affect everyone; both locally and nationally.[/p][p]This year the funds raised by our walkers will primarily go towards supporting our financial capability (money management) training sessions, which aim to help people use and manage their money better.[/p][p]In these workshops we stress the importance of using and managing money effectively. Although we cater to all, we are hoping to assist more students/young people, carers and older people. Evaluations have shown the effectiveness of our sessions (92% of participants taking effective action) so increasing the number of workshops is key. Already this year, the Wiser Money team has held 5 workshops. Additional funds and more volunteers joining the team will allow us to expand our reach and be able to provide more financial capability talks across the borough. We are confident of the positive impact this will have, especially at this time when calls for improved financial literacy, particularly among the young, are growing.[/p][p][b]Please sponsor our walkers as generously as you are able and if you would like more information about our services, please visit: www.westminstercab.org.uk[/b][/p][p][b]Many thanks for your support[/b][/p][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/i][/p]
