The Citizens Advice service offers practical, up-to-date information and advice on a wide range of topics, including; debt, benefits, housing, legal, discrimination, employment, immigration, consumer and other problems.
Our advice is available to everyone regardless of race, gender, sexuality, age, nationality, disability or religion.
Redbridge Citizens Advice Bureau provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice and information services to people living or working in the Borough of Redbridge.
The services available from our offices in Ilford and South Woodford include drop-in sessions, appointments (where appropriate), specialist debt advice to those who meet the criteria and telephone advice. We provide training opportunities to volunteers and external organisations. We campaign to influence the development of social policies, both locally and nationally, and ensure individuals do not suffer through lack of knowledge.
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.
Redbridge CAB are currently recruiting for volunteers to specialise in raising funds and promoting the bureau. Download our volunteer leaflet for more details [JPEG Image 380 KB]
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.
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?
