Cambridge & District Citizens Advice Bureau (CCAB) provides free advice which ensures that people find a way forward from their problem. Help is offered in relation to a wide range of social welfare issues, for example those linked to:
- Employment rights
- Money management
- Improving housing
- Access to benefit entitlements
- Promoting consumer rights – such as protecting people from scams and rogue traders
The organisation relies on a mixture of paid staff and trained volunteers. There are over 100 volunteers who bring a vast range of skills to the organisation. CCAB also undertakes research and campaigns work to help improve policies/laws and services causing people problems. You can find some of this research work in our document library.
The Cambridge & District CAB works as an independent charity, and are not part of the government. They have been supporting the people of Cambridgeshire since 1945.
