Between the 23rd of July and Mid-August, we’ll be moving our Leominster office from our current home in Corn Square, to the Multi-Agency Office, just next to the Leisure Centre.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to be closed during the move. We hope to be open again in the second week of August, provided we can get everything set up in our new home by then.
In the mean time, if you need advice, information or help you can use any of the other ways to access our services, such as visiting our Hereford office, calling our advice line or sending us an email. All the details can be found here.
We’re sorry we need to be closed during our move and we’ll be open again as soon as possible. As soon as’ we’ve moved we’ll update this post and provide a map to our new offices.
Herefordshire Council has reversed its proposal to withdraw our grant funding and will be maintaining our grant at its existing level until the end of our current Service Level… Agreement, i.e. until March 15. Furthermore, the Council has committed to “explore options for the delivery of advice services beyond March 2015”.
We’ve been overwhelmed and deeply touched by the support we’ve received from fellow professionals, other organisations, local stakeholders and members of the public across the county. What came across in these responses was the enormous regard in which the CAB is held and the recognition that advice really does matter.
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in our campaign! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Everyone involved with Herefordshire CAB was delighted when the team was crowned “Volunteer Team of the Year” at this year’s Volunteer Awards held at the Three Counties Hotel on 10 June.
“This is a great result for the whole service” said Chris Boote, Chair of Trustees, “I am thrilled that the hard work, commitment and dedication of our team of volunteers has been recognised in this way. The CAB has been here with advice when someone needs us since 1966; whoever they are, and whatever the problem, and the service has never been more needed than it is today in the face of on going economic austerity”.
“Initially I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the training and how much I learned, and enjoyed working with the other volunteers” added Emma Rawlins, a volunteer at the Hereford bureau for over 5 years, “then I discovered what a privilege it is to be entrusted by members of the public with all manner of problems and to be able to help them in a whole variety of ways. From debt to benefits, housing to relationships, consumer to employment problems – there is always a way forward and it is so rewarding to see the weight lift from peoples shoulders when they can share the problem and maybe even see a solution. It is hugely rewarding to be able to help people in a very tangible and practical way – for our team to be recognised in what we do by winning the volunteer team of the year was just the icing on the cake. “
