Advice Space - providing free confidential advice

 

What we do 

Advice Space is here to offer free and up-to-date factual advice to anyone who needs it and to help people find a way forward

How you can help

You can train to volunteer at reception, be an adviser or get involved in campaigning but we are always open to developing new roles that means we can help more people. 

 

If you think you have some skills that can help, contact us.

What you can do

You can donate to help us make a difference. Our services are free but we have substantial costs to meet, staff and volunteer costs, rent, heat and light – your donation really helps keep the services going in your local area - no amount is too small.

How we help

We can give you the knowledge to help you fight your corner and move a difficult situation forward or act on your behalf if it helps.

If you need help with a debt problem or a social security tribunal we will put you in touch with our specialist advisors.

Aims

We provide free advice to people with problems and we listen to what you say when things don’t work.  We speak up to improve polices and practices that affect people’s lives by challenging decision makers.

 

The name Advice Space might be new but we have been around for more than 50 years as Citizens Advice.  How we look has changed, but our ethos and our values  are the same.  Our focus is about helping people – no matter who they are – to exercise their rights and obtain fair treatment under the law.   

Who are we?

Principles

Our advice is free, independent, confidential and impartial. We help you get access to the information you need to fight your own corner and, where appropriate, act on your behalf.

Mission

Through service excellence, we exist to create positive impacts for individuals and communities, by providing clarity and focusing on solutions to the issues affecting them.
