Benefits, debt and relationships are the top three problems that Fenland people seek help with through the Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB)
A total of 50 people were seen across the four Fenland market towns out of 878 new clients for the entire Rural Cambridgeshire CAB.
The number of new clients was down on the previous year.
Out of all those seeking CAB help, 237 wanted advice specifically related to council tax/housing related issues and 32 had requested food bank vouchers.
Rural Cambridgeshire CAB will monitor demand for food banks now they are available across Fenland.
A council report also states six new volunteers have been recruited to help with public affairs, health and safety, and as gateway assessors, which is the CAB’s assessment process.
