In a joint statement the Rona Mackay and the Office of Amy Callaghan said,
“Due to Coronavirus, everyone’s lives look different to how they did at the start of this year. Many people throughout our constituencies are facing problems that they simply haven’t encountered before. We’re also seeing the increasing uncertainty around employment, concern over job losses and worries about housing and welfare.
As your local MSP and MP, we’re on hand to help.
“Both the Scottish and UK Government have brought in a range of new legislation to help people through this challenging time. With so much change and so much information, it can be difficult knowing who to turn to.
“We will be joined by specialist advisors from Citizens Advice Bureau East Dunbartonshire to help with any issue you are facing. As we have done throughout this pandemic, both our offices are here for everyone throughout East Dunbartonshire. We will do all we can to assist.”
A spokesperson for East Dunbartonshire CAB said:
“With the challenges people are facing due to Coronavirus, it has never been more important that clients are advised of their rights, how to exercise these rights, and to ensure they have the full support from the bureau in doing so.”
