Objectives

Citizens Advice helps people to solve problems and change lives.  We provide free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to help everyone who needs us.

Based in Esher, our local service serves the communities of east Elmbridge in Surrey. The advice we give to residents and workers across the Borough can help them find a way forward with their problems - be they issues at work, with the welfare system, paying back debts or with housing concerns.

By helping people solve their problems, we create financial value. This means that we save the local authority, government and
society money by stopping problems that are, or will become, costly to fix.   In 2021-22 our office helped our clients achieve individual financial outcomes of more than £870,000 by getting back-dated benefits, writing-off debts and gaining refunds for consumer issues.  
 

Activities

Each year Citizens Advice Esher & District helps around 2,000 people with 6,000 problems.  We can be found on the local high street and in other community settings to give advice face to face.  You can also reach us over the phone and online.

We also visit local schools to run financial capability sessions, providing young people with vital money-management skills.

Our service is delivered by over 30 highly-trained volunteers supported by a small paid team (of eight part-time workers) who manage the charity.
