CUMBERNAULD’S Citizen’s Advice Bureau has had its council funding protected, after the council passed its annual budget, on Thursday 14th February.
Following the budget announcement, the town’s MP, Gregg McClymont met staff at Cumbernauld and Kilsyth’s Citizen’s Advice Bureaux to celebrate the news.
Joining the Labour MP was Cumbernauld South Labour Councillor Stephanie Muir, who took up the CAB's case for protecting their funding in the Council's budget discussions, after discussing how vital the funding is to their ongoing work in supporting and helping the most vulnerable in our community.
Councillor Muir said: “I am pleased that Labour Councillors took the decision at last week’s budget meeting to protect funding for the CAB.
“Despite facing massive funding cuts from the Scottish Government, Councillors felt it was important to continue to fund such an essential service for the most vulnerable people.”
Gregg McClymont said: “Ian Eadie and his team at the CAB provide a first-class service to the community. Their expertise and dedications is vital, especially with the implications of changes to the welfare system beginning to hit.
“The news that NLC councillors have voted to protect the funding currently received by Citizen’s Advice Bureaux across the area is very welcome.”
