Community Advice Service Association

The Community Advice Services Association (CASA) was set-up to support and address the concerns of a large number of people & groups who use the CASA (The Dockers Building), who have constantly raised the issue of the lack of basic advice in the fields of welfare rights, training projects and further education and a real sense of despair & frustration that opportunities are being lost.

From Monday 23rd August 2004, Anthony Thompson a Welfare Rights Caseworker based at the Casa has been available to anyone seeking advice on:

  • Claiming a Benefit
