The Royal British Legion will be offering help and support to members of the Armed Forces and their families at new drop-in sessions at Corby Cube.

The first is being held on Monday, May 19, from 10am until 2pm.

Borough councillors agreed to the new arrangement at a One Corby Policy Committee in March and the sessions will now be held on the third Monday of every month, from 10.30am until 2pm.

The new service is part of nationwide changes by the legion to make its welfare services more accessible and Corby Cube is one of several new outreach locations in the county where help and advice will be offered.

Mark Collins, Royal British Legion area manager for Northamptonshire, said:”This partnership with Corby Council shows our commitment to making our welfare services as accessible as possible to our beneficiaries across the region.

“Their profile and needs are changing and access points such as this, together with our website and national helpline number, make it easier than ever to contact the legion to ask for help.”

Leader of Corby Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said: “We welcome the Royal British Legion to the Corby Cube. Their clinics will allow serving members of the Armed Forces now and in the past, along with their families, to access support and advice more easily, as well as adding to the range of public services that the Cube offers.”
