Manchester City Council announced its proposed budget cuts for 2015/2016 on 12th November.
These proposals outline major funding cuts of 50 – 75% to advice services and the voluntary and community sector. They including ceasing all funding for the City Wide Universal Advice Service currently delivered by Manchester Citizens Advice Bureau and Cheetham Hill Advice Centre which helps over 30,000 people per year.
The proposed cuts will mean the closure of:
The three CAB located in Moston, Moss Side and Wythenshawe – these provide trusted face to face support and assistance to access online services and Freephone access to our advice line and other services.
The City Wide Telephone Advice Service – this currently deals with over 3,500 calls per month.
The Face to Face outreach service – this service takes advice to vulnerable groups and individuals at 32 venues in their local community such as GP Surgeries and Children Centres.
