The Scottish Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) Service is made up of Citizens Advice Scotland and a network of local citizens advice bureaux.
- Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) is a national umbrella body that provides essential services to Scottish citizens advice bureaux
- Citizens advice bureaux are independent, local charities that are members of Citizens Advice Scotland. Bureaux provide advice and information to people in need in over 250 locations.
The aims of the Scottish CAB Service
- To ensure that individuals do not suffer through lack of knowledge of their rights and responsibilities, or of the services available to them, or through an inability to express their need effectively
- to exercise a responsible influence on the development of social policies and services, both locally and nationally.
CAS and Scottish bureaux work together to achieve these aims.
