Objectives

We are a locally focused charity with over 100 volunteers and employees covering the whole of the Cheshire West area.  We provide free, impartial advice and information on a wide range of issues to our local community and are the largest independent provider of generic advice within the district.

We provide free, impartial advice and information on a range of issues including employment, benefits, housing and debt. We offer a comprehensive service of information, advice, advocacy and representation, as well as working actively for change in the policies and practices of organisations that impact on the lives of the people we work with.

We recognise that problems don't just happen in isolation, but can have a severe effect on people's lives. Solving them helps to stop these situations escalating. The wider impact of advice (what we achieve as a result of solving problems and providing support) is just as important. Four out of every five people we work with said that our advice helped improve their lives. 

Activities

We deliver the aims and principles of Citizens Advice nationally by offering a comprehensive service of information, advice, advocacy and representation, and by working actively for change in the policies and practices of organisations that impact on the lives of our clients.
