Cambridge City Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council are seeking to appoint a suitable contractor to provide this service for an initial period of 24 months.

This will include ensuring that they have claimed the correct benefits, supported to claim advance payments or direct payments and understand how this impacts on their household budgets. The Contractor will need to refer clients to experts who will be able to take on individual cases of advanced debt assistance, for instance Debt Relief Orders etc.
