Citizens Advice continues to reach out
Rutherglen and Cambuslang Citizens Advice Bureau are continuing to provide their much needed outreach service across the community.
This involves a volunteer from the CAB setting up in a location in the community to offer the same service that is available in their main office in Cambuslang Main Street. We reported last week that since it’s inception almost 3,600 people had attended the outreach facilities.
The Rutherglen and Cambuslang CAB deploy the outreach programme in nine locations throughout the area.
Unless stated, the outreach centres are a drop-in service, with no appointment required.
The outreach at Whitlawburn Community Resource Centre on Belmont Road runs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am until noon and 1pm until 3pm.
The outreach at Cathkin Braes Tenants co-op at 28 Skye Road runs on Fridays from 10am until 1pm.
The outreach at Fernhill Community Centre at 12 Auchenlarie Drive is from 10am until 3pm every Monday.

The Rutherglen and Cambuslang CAB has drawn praise from various people for their hard work and highly successful outreach programme.
Rutherglen MP Margaret Ferrier previously told the Reformer:“Having personal experience of volunteering with CAB, I know that they provide a very valuable service and real help and advice.
“I’m seeing many welfarerelated cases coming into my office and I am glad that the CAB exists to offer complimentary advice to my public surgeries.”
