Southwark Citizens Advice Bureau Service helps people to solve problems. Our service provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice for everyone on their rights and responsibilities. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination. Last year we helped clients with over 27,000, issues, click here to download a copy of our annual report.
Clients can access our service face-to-face, by phone and via email. Some clients are empowered to solve problems by themselves; those requiring more support receive casework. In order to prevent problems re-emerging. we also run Money Management training sessions in collaboration with local partners.
By offering advice across key areas such as benefits, debt, housing and employment, we aim to bring about positive changes in peoples lives. This ranges from hard outcomes, such as maximising household income and improving health and wellbeing, through to softer benefits, such as improved family relationships.
We also aim to achieve broader changes for the local community. As our clients’ stories gives us a wealth of insight into challenges faced by local residents, we work with partners in local government and other agencies to improve the policies and practices that affect the local population.
