We do this by providing free, confidential advice and by campaigning to make society fairer for everyone.

What we do
Advice and Information
We believe no one should be held back by a lack of advice. That’s why we provide quality, free, independent, confidential and impartial advice for everyone when they need it, in the way they want it.
Our advice helps people resolve their legal, money, debt, benefit, employment, housing, consumer, discrimination and other issues.
Campaigning for change
We also use what we see and hear to prevent problems in the first place. The stories clients share in CAB gives us a unique insight into the problems faced by people in the UK. With over two million clients seen nationally each year it's the kind of evidence that's hard to ignore; it's all too apparent when policies and services cause people problems.
We see it as our responsibility to create a public debate around these issues and speak up.
