Local residents have reacted angrily to the news that the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) on the Kilburn High Road is to close its doors in the summer.
The CAB provides face-to-face advice advice services on debt, housing, welfare benefits and other matters to Kilburn and other NW6 residents, some of whom are very disadvantaged. James King, who lives round the corner from the CAB, said
"While we appreciate that savings need to be made because of the country’s deficit, it is odd that Camden Council is providing new CAB premises in Regents Park at the same time that the Kilburn service is being shut down.
“It is unacceptable that there is now no advice service at all in the north or northwest of the borough.”
