MSP for Shetland, Beatrice Wishart, has praised the hard-working staff and volunteers of Shetland’s Citizen Advice Bureau for their continued dedication to improving lives during a debate on Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS) in the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday.
During the debate, Ms. Wishart praised CAS for helping people avoid “debt, poverty and homeless” and paid tribute to the staff at Shetland’s own Citizen Advice Bureau. She also stated that the CAB network is “a service we cannot do without” and “If the CAB network didn’t exist, we would have to invent it”.
On the issue, Beatrice Wishart said:
“The Citizen’s Advice Bureau has been a lifeline for countless people in Shetland. The service provided by the bureau is vital to those seeking support on a wide range of issues in Shetland and as stated in the debate, it is absolutely a service that we cannot do without. I’d also like to further extend my personal gratitude to all the staff and volunteers at the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for continuing their invaluable work to provide universal help to all those who need it.
Their efforts have offered a great amount of relief to many of those struggling throughout this pandemic and it is only right that parliament has chosen to recognise their contribution”
