Valerie visits the Walsall Bangladeshi Progressive Society

“I visited the Walsall Bangladeshi Progressive Society on Monday 27 April 2015 with Cllr Harbans Sarohi the Pleck Councillor on Walsall MBC. The Society provides advice and information to the Bangladeshi community on a range of issues. These include welfare rights and benefits, housing, health, education. The society are based at 79 Wednesbury Road, Pleck. It is a good place for people in the local area to drop in and get advice. There are also computers for people to use and sewing machines to hone craft skills. While I was there a family was finding out about delays in child benefit. “
