Update on Service Provision by
Bute Advice Centre
Across Argyll & Bute
January 2021
 
Bute Advice Centre would like to reassure residents of Bute that staff are committed to continuing to deliver a comprehensive service.  We are still not offering face to face appointments, however we can be contacted on the usual number 01700 502784 and a telephone appointment will be organised with an adviser who will support you.  In addition to our core advice service provision in Bute, we continue to deliver all welfare rights services to ACHA tenants across Bute & Cowal.  We are also pleased to announce that a brand new collaboration has started in January 2021 between Bute Advice Centre, The Argyll & Bute Community Food Forum (foodbanks), Argyll Lomond and the Isles Energy (ALIenergy) and Argyll and Bute Council.  All recipients of foodbanks across the region can now call Bute Advice Centre on 01700 502784 for welfare rights advice provision and support to maximise income, with a referral to ALIenergy for energy advice and access to grants. Argyll & Bute Council have also made available through this project the Flexible Food Fund for those with no savings who are struggling all over the region, all recipients will be able to receive advice and assistance from Bute Advice Centre and ALIenergy.
