Opportunities with Citizens Advice Guildford and Ash

About

Citizens Advice Guildford and Ash was founded in 1939 and is an independent local charity and limited company.
We provide a generalist advice Monday to Friday, 10.00-16.00.
Our core funding is primarily provided by Guildford Borough Council and additional support from donations. We offer an email and phone service and face-to-face appointments for those who can’t access us through phone or email.
In additional to our core advice service, we run specialist projects:
The Macmillan project is funded by Macmillan Support and provides welfare benefit advice to people in Guildford, Waverley and Surrey Heath who are affected by cancer and is a largely telephone-based service. We also have an outreach service operating from and funded by the Fountain Centre.
The Mental Health project provides a general advice service (predominantly welfare benefits and debt) to people with mental health issues. The project has two elements; a community-based service operated from our office for people who live in Guildford and, an outreach service operated from Farnham Road Hospital and Berkley House in Godalming (though advice is currently provided over the phone due to Covid). The service is funded by the Surrey Heartlands Clinical Commissioning Group, and the Community Foundation for Surrey.
Guilford Money Advice project is funded by Guildford Borough Council and offers specialist benefits, debt and housing caseworker to Guildford residents at risk of homelessness.
