Wyre CAB

cabAt the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) we aim to help people with the problems that they face and to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives. Lancashire West CAB works across four local authority areas, including Wyre, where we have been helping clients since 2011 with the support of Wyre Borough Council. People contact us about a wide variety of issues – anything and everything from A – Z! Typically, problems with welfare benefits, debt, housing and employment feature prominently. Our job is to help people to overcome the problem by advising them about their rights as well as their responsibilities, thus enabling them to make an informed choice about what options are available. We see clients in various locations across the borough and since late 2014, with the help of Fleetwood Town Council, we have been provided with a base to work from in the town. We are currently in the process of training a number of new volunteers so that we can help more people from the Wyre area. People can contact us on 0344 245 1294, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm to discuss their problem and see what we can do to help. We also encourage anyone with internet access to visit our website at www.adviceguide.org.ukwhere you will find a vast amount of information at your disposal, printable factsheets, letter templates to use and social media sharing options.
