Massive Council Cuts To Bassetlaw Citizens Avice Bureau
We the undersigned, strongly urge Nottinghamshire County Council to urgently review their proposed 67% cuts in funding to the Citizens Advice Bureau next April... The CAB is a cornerstone voluntary Organisation largely staffed by Volunteers. Its brand name is synonymous with outstanding service and care. Much valued by residents across the whole of Bassetlaw. For Bassetlaw CAB, this massive cut in funding will affect the levels of service to the community. A stark contrast to the government’s boasts of 19% across all departments over four years. The CAB is owned by the community and works for the community. In these times of public service cuts, redundancies and cuts in the welfare state the CAB will be needed more than ever before. Nottinghamshire County Council has a moral duty to ensure the Bassetlaw Citizens Advice Bureau is in a position to do its job.
