Grant saves Citizens' Advice Bureaus in Nottinghamshire

Three Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) offices in Nottinghamshire have been saved from closure after a government contribution of £175,000.

The one-time grant comes from the government's Transition Fund, which helps organisations adapt to the loss of other public funding.

Nottinghamshire County Council has cut £200,000 from its funding to the CAB.

The Beeston and Eastwood offices will receive £85,000 with another £90,000 for Sutton in Ashfield.

Sutton-in-Ashfield chief executive Sue Davis said the money will be used to provide telephone counselling rather than a drop-in service.

The money will be used to recruit and train volunteers, including debt advisers, at the Beeston and Eastwood centres.

The county council is aiming to cut £150m from its budget in the next three years.
