Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Will Hen­shaw

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.

There is an out­reach at Ruther­glen Health Cen­treon Fri­days from 10am un­til 4pm. This Out­reach Ser­vice is by ap­point­ment only through the GP Surgery.

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.”
