Stirling District Citizens Advice Bureau Ltd

Financial Capacity Builder Project

We are Stirling District Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB), a charity and volunteer-led organisation. We're here to ensure that individuals do not suffer through ignorance of their rights, responsibilities and services available to them or through an inability to express their needs effectively. We also seek to influence the development of social policies and services, both locally and nationally.

Our Skills & Opportunities Fund grant will help in supporting vulnerable people who use food banks through our Financial Capacity Builder Project. We plan to help around 400 people break the cycle of food bank dependency by addressing their financial capacity and the underlying problems driving their need for crisis food support.

We will work with Crisis Food Bank at the three local crisis food collection sites, engaging with vulnerable people in financial difficulty who are food bank dependent to survive.
