Here's what one of Bolton CAB's many clients had to say of the help she was given, it's illustrative of the fear clients will have - if trusted community based advice agencies become a thing of the past.
This is what Mrs A says.........
"They have helped me with different problems. They helped me with water bills which I was worried about day and night. Since I saw them the water company do not disturb me like before and I am now paying as much as I can.
If I had not seen them I would never have sorted it out because I could not pay such an amount of money.
I only ever got help from them. If the government stops helping people like me then there will be a lot of people affected. I hope they can continue to help people"
