Reinstate the grant to Ely Citizens Advice Bureau

This petition had 1,054 supporters

East Cambridgeshire District Council has decided to cease its grant funding of the Citizens Advice Bureau in Ely, and provide the service itself. This means the CAB office may close, or its service be reduced.

  • ·         The Council does not have, and will not be seen to have, the independence which is essential to the service offered by the CAB, so it is probable that many people who need advice in the Ely area will be reluctant to use the Council's proposed service.
  • ·         The Council will be wasting public funds by employing and training staff to replace the free service provided by the CAB's many, experienced volunteers.

PLEASE NOTE:  East Cambs District Council will only accept signatories who live, work or study in the East Cambridgeshire area - so please sign the petition only if you are local to the area, and, when you do, please use your local postal code.
