We provide free, confidential, independent and impartial advice.
Our trained Volunteers can help to resolve a wide range of problems including issues with debt, benefits, employment, relationships, housing and consumer matters. Our advice is free and confidential.
We operate a “Gateway interview” process where you will initially have a short discussion with an adviser who will obtain basic details about your enquiry or problem. Depending on the nature of your enquiry you may be:
- offered an appointment to see an adviser for further advice
- given a time that we will phone you to give advice
- sent information by post or referred to our website
- directed to another organisation that is better suited to help you
