CAB in survey request
Rutherglen and Cambuslang locals are being urged to take part in a nationwide survey regarding food.
The plea came from the local Citizen’s Advice Bureau, who are hoping for feedback to their Food on the Table survey, which is running for the next month.
Topics covered in the questionnaire include cost, choice, access and quality of food.
Rutherglen & Cambuslang Citizens Advice Bureau Manager Sharon Hampson said: “The people who come through our doors often talk about how hard it can be for them to put food on the table.
“Cost is certainly a major issue for many, but it is not the only one.
“We also hear from people who find it hard to access good quality food in the local shops. The Scottish CAB network is running this national survey, and I want to make sure that Rutherglen and Cambuslang people form a big part of the total responses. The results will be used to inform government ministers and help shape future policy on food, so it would be a shame if people here missed out on their chance to have their say.
“So we are asking everyone in Rutherglen and Cambuslang to complete this short survey. We want to hear from people of all backgrounds and sections of society.
“It only takes a few minutes and you don’t have to give your name, but the more responses we get the stronger our voice will be.”
The survey is available online at www.cas.org.uk/ foodonthetable and paper copies will be available at the local Citizens Advice Bureau on Cambuslang Main Street.
