Cumbrian CAB struggling to cope with demand

Workington Citizens Advice Bureau is struggling to cope with the increasing volume of calls at the same time funding dries up.
Have your say
I travel right across Cumbria and wherever I go I keep seeing cards in shop windows advertising vacancies. Where I live the chip shop and bakers both have adverts and have had for weeks. Maybe the CAB should tell people to get a job, low paid or otherwise. I work 50ish hours a week and have never had benefits in my life. I really don't think it is unreasonable to ask a couple to work 24 hours between them if they want hand outs. Maybe if the CAB charged a small consultation fee, Â£10 or so, people would think before they complained.
seen this article and i instantly cried, so sad. thoughts go out to them struggling to cope with the demand. Feel so sorry for you all :(
Heaadline should be: organisation trying to make sure it doesnt suffer a grant cut from the local council so puts out a press release telling us all how good a job it is doing.
