Causeway Women's Aid launches new Debt Advice Project in Moyle

Tuesday 30th March saw the official launch of the Debt Action NI Project in Moyle. The project, delivered by Causeway Women's Aid in conjunction with Advice NI, offers free, independent and confidential advice and assistance to anyone who is experiencing financial problems or has fallen into debt.

The project is funded by DETI and Ulster Bank and was developed in response to the increasing demand for money advice from the public and a recognition of the increasing financial pressures within the community as a whole.

Speaking at the Moyle launch the Chairperson of Moyle District Council, Cllr. Cara McShane, welcomed the project and expressed her hope that people living in the area would make use of this service.
Sinead Campbell, Advice NI's co-ordinator for the project and Mathilda Taulbutt from Causeway Women's Aid also welcomed the opportunity that this funding has given them to deliver this crucial service in Moyle and went on to thank the local Housing Executive and Youth Links for approving the use of their premises for delivery of the service. In Moyle the Debt Action NI project has been operating since February and will run, in the first instance, until March 2011. A trained advice worker is available 2 ½ days a week in venues in both Ballycastle and Bushmills and can provide a range of support and advice including maximising income, preparing budgets and negotiating with creditors.
Anyone who is experiencing financial difficulties or is concerned that they are at risk of falling into debt should contact Moira directly on 07578026304 to make an appointment or alternatively can leave a message at (028) 70356573.
