Two Suffolk advice services 'not viable'

Two walk-in services providing advice on council services and benefits in Suffolk are to close after a review.

The decision has been taken to end the walk-in service in Stowmarket and Eye from 31 March this year.

Suffolk County Council and Mid Suffolk District Council decided to end the service because it was "not financially viable".

A council spokeswoman said the number of people using the walk-in centres had fallen over the past few years.

She added that the "services are available in other ways, in particular via the internet and over the phone".

The walk-in centre in Needham Market will remain open and residents can use their local libraries to access online services and advice, she said.

In Stowmarket residents can also use the Tourist Information Centre.
