WHAT WE DO
We provide free, confidential and impartial advice and campaign on big issues affecting people's lives in Ashfield.
Our goal is to help everyone find a way forward, whatever problem they face
We're an independent charity and part of the Citizens Advice network across England and Wales.
We work with you to find out more about your problem, give you information, explain your options and identify what further action can be taken.
We can also help you with filling in forms, drafting letters and contacting third parties on your behalf.
We also have specialist debt and welfare benefits caseworkers who deal with more complex cases and can work with you over time to help you resolve your debt or benefit issues
With thanks to Ashfield District & Nottinghamshire County Councils who give us a core grant which covers a portion of the cost of the general advice service, and the generous donations from local trusts and foundations including
JN Derbyshire Trust
The Jones 1986 Charitable Trust
The Gray Trust
Souter Charitable Trust
Sir John Eastwood Foundation
Open Gate Trust
The Thoresby Trust
Lady Hind Trust
and local business supporters like Lindhurst Engineering who have made us their 'Charity of the Year'
We also receive project specific funding from the National Lottery Community Fund who fund our mobile and outreach service, the Money & Pensions Service to deliver debt advice and Henry Smith Charity to deliver partnership advice with the DWP & Council.
