Peterborough CAB is a local independent charity that has been serving the people of Peterborough and surrounding areas for over 40 years. We are the only major, exclusively free provider of advice in Peterborough. Our services are used by over 7,000 people each year, often during a crisis in their lives. Most people will use a CAB at some point in their lives and we need to continue to be as responsive to the needs of as many people as possible during these difficult economic times.
During the past year, we assisted 6,522 unique clients and dealt with 37,220 enquiries. Our work produced financial gains for clients of £7,250,254 in the year most of which will be spent and reinvested in the local Peterborough economy. Apart from information and advice we are leading strategically in partnership with Peterborough City Council on financial inclusion issues and a focus on reducing child poverty in Peterborough.
