The twin aims of the Citizens Advice service are:
'To provide the advice people need for the problems they face, and to improve the policies and practices that affect people's lives'
If you have an enquiry
We will do an initial assessment by telephone (01473 219777) or you can drop-in for an assessment (at the times above). This is called a Gateway.
Following the Gateway Assessment and where an in-depth advice session is needed, a full appointment with an Adviser or Specialist Adviser will be made.
