Fuel poverty is an ever increasing problem.  Some of our staff hold a City & Guilds qualification in Energy Awareness and can offer advice and assistance on a range of energy related issues such as heating, insulation and fuel bills and fuel debt.  West Dunbartonshire Citizens Advice Bureau, in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Council, are currently providing advice and support on these issues, and tariffs, via the Local Energy Awareness Project.  Residents can drop in to their local Citizens Advice Bureau office or contact them online.

We specialise in supporting those affected by cancer, mental health, learning disability and other long term health conditions.  We can access other grant aid and social care services.

We know debt can cause stress and sleepless nights. Our advisers are here to provide information to allow you to make an informed choice in your route out of debt.  This can include options such as reducing current repayments, Bankruptcy,  Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS), Minimal Asset Process (MAP) and Trust Deeds.  We will assist you throughout the process.

This is a free and confidential service to all residents and WDC staff in West Dunbartonshire.
