BANES Citizen’s Advice Bureau under threat – sign petition here

Cuts to third sector organisations have been harsh over the past
few years and while reductions have been made in Bath and North East
Somerset none have been so severe as the cuts which are intended for
the next financial year . From April 2015, B&NES Council intends to
reduce the budget for advice services currently provided by Citizens
Advice Bureau Bath and North East Somerset by 60%. A reduction such
as this will have a devastating impact on all those who depend on
advice services. Last year CAB B&NES helped 1 in 20 people in Bath
and North East Somerset deal with the problems they were facing and
also challenged social policy issues which affect us all. CAB B&NES
provides Free, Confidential, Impartial, Independent advice to anyone
who needs us. Our services are mainly used by those who are the most
vulnerable and have no one else to turn to in a time of crisis.

Without organisations such as CAB B&NES there is a real threat to
social justice. Those with the greatest need will be denied access to
advice and support. Please, please sign our online petition:
