You may be aware of the significant budget challenges that Cornwall Council, along with most other Councils across the country, is continuing to have to manage. We have already achieved £300 million savings since 2009 and now face the challenge of finding another £75 million by April 2021. With such a huge challenge, we face the unenviable task of having to decide how to deliver services with less budget, which involves doing things differently and making changes in how we work.

One of the areas in the previous round of budget savings was the phased reduction and removal of the grant to Citizens Advice Cornwall in 2017/18.

In response to community consultation, Cornwall Council confirmed a four year funding deal for Citizens Advice Cornwall to ensure the service can continue helping vulnerable people.
