CITIZEN’S ADVICE BUREAU

Bacau NE Romania

 

The Citizens’ Advice Bureau in Romania represents a service of public interest that answers to the citizens’ need of information and counselling.

It provides an invaluable service particularly for the poor and needy, helping them negotiate the maze of Kafkaesque bureaucracy and claim their rightful social benefits. Plus helping them in legal disputes with landlords and so on.

It was set up with the assistance of the UK's National Association of CAB’s. It is part of a National Network which is based on the UK model.

The Bacau Citizen’s Advice Bureau was originally funded by two EU grants - run by FSC in conjunction with the City Council -which have now expired.

A visitor from the National Association of CAB’s said that the Bacau office was “one of the most efficient and successful bureaux of the network”.
