Citizens Advice is to receive £9.5 million of "sorely needed" additional funding as it prepares to take on a greater role from next month.

Consumer minister Jo Swinson will announce the package during a visit to Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau in Paisley ahead of the service becoming a "one-stop shop" for information and advice about general consumer issues.
