    Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) is calling for longer-term funding as its members’ services come under increasing pressure from the public.

    More people are seeking free advice from Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) with March 2023 seeing record breaking demand for the network.

    CAS made the plea in a submission to Holyrood’s Finance and Public Administration Committee’s pre-budget scrutiny call for evidence.

    CAS are arguing strongly for the protection and prioritisation of funding for advice services until 2027. CAS claim the current cost of living crisis will cast a long shadow and leave a significant legacy of debt which will require people to have access to confidential, impartial and free advice.
