EDM: East Renfrewshire Citizen's Advice Bureau

Very glad to join the East Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau AGM today, along with Councillors Colm Merrick and Annette Ireland, to hear the annual report and have an opportunity to reflect on the outstanding work of this local team of staff and volunteers who go the extra mile every day to support people through difficult times.


I know only too well from my own caseload what tireless advocates our CAB team are for our community. It is no surprise to hear the huge sums of money they have saved for those they assist, and the immense numbers of cases dealt with. I know they will continue their hard work supporting us locally, as they have done all through the pandemic, and I wish them all the best with their continued endeavours.


You can read more about their work, including how to contact them for support, here: https://www.cas.org.uk/.../east-renfrewshire-citizens...


And you can see in the image an Early Day Motion which I tables earlier this year, commending the team on their outstanding efforts.
