Citizens Advice Islington delivers a free confidential service to Islington residents in relation to welfare benefits, housing, debt, employment and consumer issues.
Contact us by calling our Adviceline on 0300 330 1197. This is open from Monday to Friday, 10am-4pm. We provide advice on dealing with debts such as rent, fuel, loans and credit cards and help you improve your day to day budgeting skills. We can check that you are receiving the benefits/tax credits that you’re entitled to, and help you negotiate suitable arrangements that are affordable for you.
If you are a low paid worker, self-employed or run a small business (with nine or less staff) in Islington, we can advise you through our employment team called “Make it Work”. You can contact the Make It Work team via email email@example.com The end date of this project is expected September 30 2018.
We also deal with Debt Relief Orders (DROs) and have a specialist bankruptcy team.
We also offer a national telephone and online consumer advice service that is supported by local authorities and the Department of Business Innovation and Skills. The service offers advice on how to resolve any consumer complaints about faulty goods or services. We take all first calls for trading standards and refer anything that
needs further action to the relevant local service.
This service can support clients with:
- Debt advice and help with money
- Help with benefits or grants
- Advice about consumer law
