Citizens Advice Bureau insight with Twitter event

Share this article

Central and South Sussex Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) will join dozens of bureaux across the UK, to take part in a social networking event which aims to give a comprehensive insight into the workings of the service.

From July 15 until 19 Twitter users will be able to use the hashtag #CABLive to search for and view bureaux tweeting their day-to-day activities, together in one stream - from advising clients with debt, employment and a broad range of other issues, to Social Policy work such as raising awareness of scams, training and recruiting volunteers, and making funding applications.

Previous #CABLive events have seen bureaux tweeting successful outcomes, such as a client being awarded a substantial sum of money from an Employment Tribunal thanks to the help of a CAB adviser.

The event also aims to highlight the fact that each CAB is an individual charity, largely dependent on volunteers and responsible for sourcing its own funding.

Clare Mannsaker, Business Development Manager at Central and South Sussex CAB, today said: “We are delighted to be taking part in this exciting event, joining dozens of other bureaux across the country to spread the word about the huge importance of our work.

“We hope #CABLive will enable people to gain a real understanding of what their CAB does and how our advisers might be able to help them with problems they may be facing.”
