Alison Talbot, chief officer for Citizens Advice New Forest, said: “The aim is to have a Citizens Advice representative present at the Food Larder to offer support, advice and information. It means that anyone who comes along can also chat to one of our team if they would like to. This generous contribution from ExxonMobil Fawley is helping to pilot this initiative at Food Larders in Marchwood, Hythe, Blackfield, and Calshot.”

Angharad Vaughan, community affairs adviser at ExxonMobil Fawley, said: “Citizens Advice New Forest provides a valuable service to many people in our community. We are delighted to support this pilot initiative and hope it will help many more people in need of advice to access the support.”
