Citizens Advice Bureaux deliver frontline advice services through almost 290 service points across the country, from city centres to island communities.
In 2016-17 our CAB network of dedicated staff helped over 274,000 people deal with over 930,000 advice issues. In this year, CAB recorded a financial gain for clients of over £144 million.
CAB record the issues that clients present with when they seek advice. This gives the Scottish CAB service a unique insight into how policies, practices, and processes are impacting on people in local communities across the country.

Citizens Advice Direct, the Citizens Advice Consumer Service and the Extra Help Unit are available to anyone in Scotland. We include their issue numbers in our overall statistics but not in profiles which are on a geographic basis.
Statistics produced by CAS are as at the time of exporting from CAB systems. Locally produced CAB statistics may therefore slightly differ.
CAB are represented in 30 of Scotland’s 32 local authority areas but not in South Ayrshire or Inverclyde. Therefore Scotland profiles are used for these areas.
