Pension Wise appointments Print
Sunday, 11 October 2015 10:42

Citizens Advice Denbighshire is delivering Pension Wise appointments across Wrexham, Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy and into Gwynedd giving people access to free and impartial pension guidance in their local area.

Following pension reforms on April 6, people approaching retirement have greater freedom over how they can use their pension pots. People will be able to take a lump sum, take out an annuity or a mixture of both. Pension Wise is a new Government service designed to help people make sense of their pension options, and empower them to make the right choices for them.

Reshaping Services / Budget consultation Print
Monday, 21 September 2015 16:26

Local Authorities continue to face a reduction in funding from central Government, which means that Councils must continue find ways function and deliver services with much smaller budgets.  In Wrexham we estimate that we are going to need to save a further £45million over the next three years.  This is in addition to the £23.2million we have already saved over the last three years.

Whilst we are doing all that we can to protect services, the ongoing need to make significant savings year after year, is leading to us having to make more and more difficult decisions.
