    The impressive results from last year's MORI survey show that the Scottish public, and other organisations, trust the CAB service to deliver accurately the advice they need, and they respect the values that underpin our work. This gives us the confidence to address the challenges ahead, as outlined in this plan, secure in the knowledge that the service has a strong record in evolving successfully, while holding firm to our core values.

    The CAB service exists to meet the needs of our varied groups of clients, needs which are not only growing, but getting more complex. And we know that there is unmet need for advice, so improving access to the service is something we have to address.

    This has, undeniably, been a very testing year for Citizens Advice Scotland. In 2006/07, CAS was subjected to a ‘zero-based review’ by the government against a background of an exceptionally tight public expenditure round. This review concluded that we offer good value for money.

    Nevertheless we have had to absorb a 10% cut in core funding in the current year and we are facing a standstill budget for the next 4 years. In real terms this represents a 23% cut in our core grant.
