REGIONAL AM, Eluned Morgan will bring her “YOUR HEALTH, YOUR WEATLTH” money advice and well-being roadshow to Llanelli on Thursday 18th April.
More than a dozen local and national organisations will be present at the pop-up event at the St. Elli Centre aimed at helping local residents to access advice and support. Information will be available about a wide range of topics from benefit changes to energy savings and how to stay fit and healthy as Universal Credit and other benefit changes take place in Carmarthenshire.
Eluned Morgan AM said:
“Many are finding that their household budgets are squeezed as bills continue to rise. For many people, especially on lower incomes, the changing benefits system and the increasing cost of living is making life much more stressful. I’ve been speaking to local organisations to put together an event that makes it easy for people to get the information they need, all under one roof and I’m delighted that it’ll take place right in the heart of Llanelli.”
Alongside Eluned Morgan, Llanelli MP Nia Griffith and AM Lee Waters will be holding an advice surgery to take up issues on behalf of local residents.
Eluned continued: “We know that Universal Credit is having an impact on the self-employed people or those considering self-employment, which is why I’ve also asked the Department of Work and Pensions to come along to explain how the changes will work.”
Everyone attending will be receive an official event booklet detailing moneysaving tips, healthy living ideas and essential contact information for local organisations.

Eluned Morgan will be holding an advice surgery during the event, where local residents can raise a concern about an issue in their community or ask a question about the role of the National Assembly for Wales at the event taking place between 11.00am and 1.30pm.
