Cllr Chris Root (Horwich Town Mayor, 2013-14) was instrumental in developing a partnership with Bolton CAB in order to deliver outreach sessions at Horwich Resource Centre on a fortnightly basis.
“This is definitely something needed in Horwich, as there is no longer a direct bus route into Bolton Town Centre”

A trained advisor attends the centre to offer advice on Welfare Benefits, Debt, Immigration and Asylum, Housing and Community Care.
Launched in May 2014, Cllr Lynne McCartin said, “credit to Chris, this is a really good idea”.
As this session is offered directly before the Friday lunch club at the centre this offers the community a valuable resource of having somewhere to go and have a chat and get advice for any of the issues they are facing.
