Virtual advice surgeries for people in the Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath constituency
Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath MP, Neale Hanvey has this week launched virtual advice surgeries for everyone living in his constituency.
This follows local politicians cancelling their normal surgeries due to the coronavirus lockdown.
But now people in the Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath constituency will be able to seek advice from Mr Hanvey by video call or, for those less tech-savvy, by phone.
The surgeries run every second week, 10am to 12pm on Tuesdays and 2pm to 4pm on Thursdays.
"I’m determined to do everything I can to support people in my constituency and that includes running advice surgeries."
The Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath MP has also requested that the Chancellor extends support to everyone who was missed out in the original stimulus package. This includes those who have registered as self-employed within the last year and people who started jobs after 28 February.
Commenting, Neale said:
“People need support and advice now more than ever. My office has seen a 350 percent increase in the average number of weekly cases due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m determined to do everything I can to support people in my constituency and that includes running advice surgeries.
“And with the help of modern technology, I can offer the face-to-face appointments that are so important to people.
“If I can be of assistance with any issues – related to coronavirus or otherwise – then I urge people to please get in touch with my office. We’ll get through these times together.”
