Councils to decide Citizens Advice Bureau funding levels


The Citizens Advice Bureau service could be devastated because of budget cuts, its chief has warned.

A number of centres are set to close as councils in England and Wales decide their funding for local CAB services.

CAB chief executive Gillian Guy said the service could be looking at a 45% drop in funding as a result of cuts in local and central government support.

The government said current funding for the CAB was haphazard but such services were important and should be supported.
