CAB WARNS OF ‘PERFECT STORM’ FACING PEOPLE IN WEST LOTHIAN
New campaign encourages people to get advice
West Lothian Citizens Advice Bureau is today warning that a ‘perfect storm’ of financial changes is set to leave thousands of people worse off.
Autumn sees the end of the furlough scheme, rising energy bills and a cut of £20 per week to Universal Credit.
Against this background, the local CAB is launching a campaign reminding people in West Lothian that free, confidential and impartial advice is available for anyone who needs it.
Last year West Lothian CAB unlocked over £1.75 million in gains for people, helping over 10,000 clients in the process.
West Lothian CAB Manager Brian Jeffrey said:
“People facing tough financial choices in the coming weeks should know that our advice adds up. Our team of advisers are here to help anyone who is in financial difficulty. Remember our advice is always free, confidential and impartial.
You can call our advice lines on 01506 432977, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org us, or get our advice online at www.cas.org.uk/our-advice-adds-up.”
