Other organisations like Thames Water, Kooth, the Feeding Swindon Partnership, Healthwatch and The Wonky Veg Club will also be in attendance.
Councillor Jim Grant, Swindon Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities & Joint Working, said: “There will be so much advice on offer so I would encourage people in the local area to make their way to one of the roadshows. We’ve teamed up with a range of local organisations and charities, so you’ll be able to get some great advice, whatever your situation is.
“If you can’t make it to a roadshow, head to our dedicated cost of living web page at www.swindon.gov.uk/costofliving where you can find a list of support available to help you or someone you know with the cost of living.”
