Rotherham’s Citizen’s Advice Bureau has moved to a more central location in the town centre in its 50th anniversary year.

The move came after the CAB secured £200,000 of funding from Rotherham Council to continue and expand its services.

The CAB used to be on Wellgate but is now in the ‘Advice in Rotherham building’ on Eastwood Lane, which also houses organisations including Carers 4 Carers, Victim Support, Potential 4 Skills and the National Careers Service.

CAB Chief Executive, Annette Cassam, said: “Our new home will allow us to continue to provide a first class service to people needing advice and support in Rotherham.”

Councillor Emma Hoddinott, Deputy Leader of Rotherham Council, said: “I have seen for myself the amazing work done by staff and volunteers at Rotherham Citizen’s Advice Bureau. “Thousands of local people rely on them every year when they face difficult financial, housing or legal situations.

“It’s important people in Rotherham can get easy access to advice to help them during difficult times and I hope they will go from strength to strength in their new building.”
