A FREE financial advice service has relaunched at the recently refurbished Otley Library.

Money Buddies has been supporting residents across Leeds - at community hubs, libraries, community centres, churches and a medical practice - since 2014.

The group provides free, impartial help on a wide range of financial issues including debt,, benefit checks and form filling for energy and water trust applications. Part of the Burmantofts Community Projects charity, it also helps people find better energy deals and switch utility suppliers to save money.

Money Buddies services are available at Otley Library on most Mondays from 9am to noon and no appointment is needed.

Anyone unable to visit can call the organisation’s Head Office on (0113) 235 0276. Otley Library re-opened in April following a four month refurbishment and an official reopening ceremony will be held on Friday, June 14.
