MABS marks 30 years of service

MABS, the Money Advice and Budgeting Service is marking 30 years since it was established to support the people of Ireland who are in debt or at risk of getting into debt through its independent, confidential and non-judgmental money advice and budgeting services. It is funded and supported by the Citizens Information Board (CIB).

Groups show support for women at risk of violence

Twelve organisations, including domestic and sexual violence services, women’s support groups, the Courts, the Gardaí, Clare County Council and men’s support groups among others have joined forces to launch a uniquely Clare campaign to let women at risk of violence and abuse know that a unified support system is in place and available for them, right here in their community.

Any changes to MABS should not dilute service

Grave concern has been expressed nationally and locally to reports of a propose reorganisation of the Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS).
