Service Provision

The first contact will be with a General Adviser .  If you need to come back we will give you an appointment.  If you don’t live in Musselburgh we can see you at one of our outreach clinics. We provide Outreach clinics for benefits and debt advice across East Lothian. These sessions are by appointment only and there are a limited number of appointment times available. If you would like to make an appointment at any of the outreach sessions, please phone 0131 665 1141. 

Specialist Advice at the Bureau includes Debt Advice, Employment Enquiries, Fuel Poverty and Financial Capability for local groups or individuals. Appointments with our specialist advisers are made, when appropriate, after you have seen a general adviser. 

Musselburgh CAB can now offer appointments with our Money Adviser over the phone on a Saturday between 9am-3pm 

Our Free Legal Advice Clinic is every alternate Tuesday by appointment only. Appointments are made through the general clinic. 

See our web site for more information on all of the above.
