Offering 1:1 advice on a range of subjects to residents of the parish.  
The Woughton Advice Service (also known as 'The WAS') officially opened in 2014 with an aim to enable people in Woughton to have easy access to advice on a range of subjects.  
Over the past 8 years, the service has supported thousands of local people with a huge range of issues, saved people money, helped prevent homelessness, brought rogue employers to heel and helped people take control of their lives.  
With sessions happening across the parish, it is easy to get an appointment and, if urgent, we can often see you on the same day (although this cannot be guaranteed). 
We work with loads of other organisations too, so if we can't help directly, we usually know someone else who can assist.  
What WAS can offer support with: 
Debt/money issues 
Education and Employment 
Referrals and signposting to other services 
Form filling (paperwork and online) 
Housing issues 
For some people, simply making that first step and getting in touch makes a huge difference. Don't wait until it's too late - get in touch and get some help.  
To access the service, get in touch. You can access sessions at: 
Hedgerows Family Centre (Netherfield) - Tuesdays between 10am - noon* 
Moorlands Family Centre (Beanhill) - Wednesdays between 10am - noon* 
Or by contacting the service directly: 
Phone: 01908 395681 
Email: WAS@woughtoncommunitycouncil.gov.uk 
We will be introducing a 'drop in' session shortly, but at the moment we would ask you to arrange an appointment.  
Those sessions with an * are APPOINTMENT ONLY.
