One to One Support
The CAB aims to ensure that no-one suffers due to lack of awareness of their rights and responsibilities. We offer one-to-one support in many languages and interpreters are available when needed. Support and advice can be given at our offices, or we can visit you at home. We can refer you to other agencies and we can represent you and negotiate on your behalf if required.
We are happy to arrange visits to speak to community groups. Here, we can talk about the range of services offered by the CAB. Or, we can deliver question and answer sessions on specific topics. If you feel this would be of benefit to your community, please get in touch.
