What We Do
Coventry Citizens Advice is here to make society fairer. We do that one person at a time, helping people solve their individual problems and build resilience for the future. Last year we supported over 20,000 people online, over the phone and face to face providing free, impartial, independent and confidential advice. We are one of the few remaining agencies with an "Open Door" service in the city Centre.
We need your help
Out of 22 national charities, the Citizens Advice service is ranked by the general public as being the most helpful, approachable, professional, informative, effective/cost effective, reputable and accountable. Funding is reducing, whilst the demand for our services is increasing and we need your help to continue supporting the people of Coventry. Every £1 invested generates £11 benefit to the client. Find out about supporting our work below.
