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.
Sleaford and District Citizens Advice Bureau has over 70 volunteers in varying roles. Last year we helped almost 4000 people deal with 4900 problems by providing a range of services designed to ensure you receive the help you need.
As well as a general advice service provided from the bureau, outreach services for families with children are provided from various Surestart Children's Centres across North Kesteven.
Sleaford CAB provides specialist advice through a team of welfare benefits and money advice caseworkers and we can also help you to access specialist advice via local solicitors should you need it.
As a partner within the Lincolnshire County Council 'First Contact' scheme, you can access their checklist via the website www.firstcontact.org.uk
We provide telephone advice as part of the Lincolnshire Citizens Adviceline 08444 111 444 and you can access advice online via Adviceguide.org.uk
We also now offer face to face debt advice.
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.
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?
