We all realise that the CAB do some excellent work and their staff are first rate. Therefore it is sad that due to severe funding cuts being made to the Birmingham City Council by the government, the Council has had to reduce grants being given to the CAB organisation.
This means the Kingstanding CAB office and others are coming under intense pressure funding wise and may have to close.
I have raised this issue with senior Council officials who are now doing what they can to consult with the CAB to try and resolve the issue of funding difficulties for that organisation.
The CAB have raised 21K themselves but need more help to meet the shortfall in funding they have.
