To: DERBY CITY COUNCIL

Save Derby CITIZENS ADVICE CENTRE

Derby is to become the only city in the country not to have a Citizens Advice Bureau. This is totally unacceptable, I want you to find a way to keep this open as a major priority .

Why is this important?

The organization helps thousands of vulnerable, including people with mental health issues and disadvantaged Derby and Derbyshire residents a year with debt advice, free legal assistance and advocacy. It is vital these groups get help and support.

Reasons for signing

  • Don't Sit on the Fence!!
  • Its a vital service to the community
  • My mother in law worked at CAB as did our neighbour, they told me on the many people helped and how important it was to help people from dropping out of society. Such a valuable resource being lost in Derby and being replaced by cronies from the ruling party group.
