Support and advice is on hand for Carmarthenshire residents who are struggling with their finances.

During the last 18 months, and in the midst of the cost of living crisis, Carmarthenshire County Council’s Hwb Advisors have supported and offered advice to many residents.

Based at the community Hwbs in Ammanford, Llanelli and Carmarthen, HWB Advisors have been on hand to provide face to face specialist support and advice to help with the cost of living and other matters. 

The Hwb Advisers are available from Monday to Friday every week, along with housing officers and employability advisers, to provide tailored packages of support to residents. 

Visitors to the Hwbs can also access information on the services available to support them as the cost-of-living increases. 

For further help, support and information, visit the Council’s Cost of Living Advice page by going to and following the menus from ‘Council Services’ to ‘Benefits’.

Cllr Linda Davies Evans, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Tackling Poverty said: “Our Hwb Advisors perform a valuable and professional service and I would urge anybody that is worried about their finances and finding it difficult to make ends meet to contact our Hwb Advisors to see what advice and help is available to them.”
