About us

Newcastle & Kidsgrove Citizens Advice Bureau offers drop-in and telephone advice at each of our offices in Newcastle and Kidsgrove. The service was recently extended to include early evening and weekend opening times.

We also run weekly sessions at 8 local health settings and 2 outreach locations.

We currently have 42 volunteers, 7 volunteer Trustee Board members and 16 paid staff working across both sites.

The majority of advisers are trained volunteers, helping the Citizens Advice service to resolve over seven million new problems every year.

We couldn’t survive without our 21,500 fantastic volunteers, but we need around 5,000 more. We’re looking for all sorts of people with different backgrounds and skills to volunteer with us for a uniquely rewarding experience.

About the Citizens Advice service

There are 382 Citizens Advice Bureaux across England and Wales, all of which are members of Citizens Advice.

Together, we are the Citizens Advice service, and we help people resolve their legal, money and other problems by providing free, independent and confidential advice, and by influencing policymakers.

Support us

Because every Citizens Advice Bureau is an independent charity we rely on the support of people like you.

With a Citizens Advice Bureau in the community people always have somewhere to turn in times of crisis, but the unmet demand for our service is growing. Can you help us to help more people?
