What do Citizens Advice do?

Every Citizens Advice across the country is an independent charity. Here in North Hertfordshire our highly trained volunteer and paid advisers provide a full range of advice levels tailored to the client’s needs: signposting and assisted information; advice; and specialist advice and casework. 

It's ok to ask for help

Whoever you are, whatever the problem – if something is worrying you and you can’t see a way forward then please get in touch.  Our help is confidential and impartial and we’ll always do our best to support you. 

We are an independent charity

Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire is an independent, local charity reliant on raising our own funds to carry out our work to improve the lives of residents in North Hertfordshire and parts of South Cambridgeshire.

Essential volunteers

Volunteering for Citizens Advice North Herts provides opportunities for people to learn new skills, make new friends, and feel part of a community, as well as gain confidence and improve their wellbeing. For many of our volunteers, it also offers a sense of purpose and satisfaction that comes from knowing they are making a real difference to the lives of local residents. 

Campaigning

We also provide preventative activities such as awareness raising talks and workshops. And we campaign on important issues to make policies and practices better for everyone.
