CAB Service partnerships

Citizens Advice Scotland and our member bureaux have a strong track record of partnership working to deliver advice to some of Scotland's most vulnerable people. Our projects seek to boost the capacity of local bureaux to provide specialist or enhanced advice, often targeting particular client groups.

Patient Advice and Support Service

The Patient Advice and Support Service is an independent service which provides free, accessible and confidential information, advice and support to patients, their carers and families in their dealings with the NHS. The service

  • can provide information, advice and support for anyone who wants to give feedback, make comments, raise concerns or make a complaint about treatment and care provided by the NHS in Scotland.
  • help people to understand their rights and responsibilities as a patient. 
  • works with the NHS in Scotland to improve healthcare provision - work that can be done because of the feedback that is provided

Kinship care

All across Scotland, thousands of people care for children because their natural parents are unable to do so. These are often grandparents, aunts and uncles but can also be family friends. People who look after children in these kinds of circumstances are often known as ‘kinship carers’.
