The Kerry Citizens’ Information Service Mobile Unit will visit Garvey’s SuperValu Car Park here in Castleisland on Monday morning from 10am to 12.30pm before heading to Rathmore Community Centre for its 2pm to 4pm appointment there.
“Kerry Citizens’ Information Service aims to reach all communities in the county to ensure that all citizens have easy access to high quality information, advice and advocacy,” said service manager, Frances Clifford.
“The mobile and outreach service is purely for the convenience of those who would find it difficult to visit our other Kerry centres in Tralee, Killarney, Listowel, Killorglin, Kenmare, Caherciveen and Dingle.
Rights and Entitlements
“Our objective is to ensure that all citizens are fully aware of their rights and entitlements. Our service is free, impartial and confidential,” said Ms. Clifford.
Citizens’ Information provides information on a wide range of issues, including: employment rights; housing; social welfare; family matters; pensions; migrant rights; health services; education; disability and much more.
Over 28,000 Kerry Queries
Staff members can also help complete forms, write letters, make telephone calls and calculate entitlements. They also regularly visit community groups around the county to give information talks on a wide range of topics.
In 2016, they dealt with over 19,000 callers and over 28,000 queries in Kerry.
Citizens’ Information is a free and confidential service and is funded and supported by the Citizens Information Board.
