About the Project:
We are Citizens Advice Edinburgh (CAE), a local charity providing free and impartial advice, support and advocacy services to people in Edinburgh. We rely on donations and fundraised income to provide our services, which are primarily delivered by volunteers.
The project that we would like your support with is the North East Locality Citizens Advice Partnership.
This project will work in partnership with social work and housing services in Craigmillar, one of the most disadvantaged communities in the country, to support the families in greatest need by helping them to gain employment skills through volunteering opportunities with CAE and local employers.
We will also provide financial education and support to address debt problems and to improve income maximisation, with the aim of breaking the cycle of disadvantage.
Funding will allow us to provide a Citizens Advice worker in the community, who will work in partnership with social work and housing services to support the clients in the greatest need. They will also run community workshops for clients looking for advice and guidance on budgeting, managing debt and maximising their income.
