Description

A chance to become one of a hard working team of volunteers who are able to offer a wide range of advice and help to people on any subject. Training is an important aspect of our work and this allows individuals to learn new skills as well as to hone skills they already have to the benefit of the wider community. There is no better feeling than that achieved after helping individuals make positive changes in their lives

Organisation aims and objectives

Peebles and District Citizens Advice Bureau is a local, voluntary advice agency providing invaluable advice, information and support to the citizens of Peebles and Tweeddale. It is an individual, independent charity in its own right, working in partnership and as part of a wider Citizens Advice Network in Scotland and a consortium of CAB in the Scottish Borders. We believe that every citizen should have access to free, impartial and confidential advice that helps them make informed decisions, whenever they need it and however they choose to access it.
