Here at East Dunbartonshire Citizens Advice Bureau, we provide free, confidential and impartial advice to all residents. We cover a wide range of topics from financial, to legal to healthcare advice. So, whatever your issue, our trained advisers will guide you in the right direction. We can check you are receiving all the benefits you are entitled to. And we’ll ensure you are aware of your rights and responsibilities.
We know that life can be challenging, and that many of the systems in Scotland and the UK can be complicated. And we are here to simplify the process for you. We’ll explain the systems, put you in touch with the correct organisations, and help you to access services.
Our offices in Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs serve all residents in East Dunbartonshire, near Glasgow, Scotland. If you need help or advice, please make an appointment at one of our offices or visit a local outreach surgery. You can view all of our locations here. And if you’re unable to travel to us, we can visit you in your own home.
We give completely free and confidential advice. And the CAB is an independent organisation. Our advisers are not linked to any particular service providers. So, we can give impartial advice and find the best help for you.
Important to point out is, last year we assisted with over 11,000 clients with benefits issues alone. This included representation, form completion or mediating on a clients behalf to secure either benefits or tax credit payments.
Also, almost 10% of our inquiries were debt related. And we were able to assist over 2,000 clients through negotiating with their creditors. As a result, this provided suitable options including token repayments, reduced payment proposals, Debt Arrangement Scheme and Sequestration.
