CAS response to latest Jobcentre closures

26 Jan 2017

Citizens Advice Scotland has said the UK government's announcement of more Jobcentre closures will hurt low-income families.

CAS spokesman Rob Gowans says,  

"Scottish CAB advisers deal every day with vulnerable people who really do rely on the services that local Jobcentres provide. 

"Our evidence shows that many of those people are on very low incomes and simply cannot afford to travel long distances. Many are also unable to use the Internet as an alternative because they lack the skills or the access."
