"I would just like to say how grateful I am with the advice and help I have received from Citizens Advice Trafford. I have been getting sleepless over the issues I had and I can honestly say I am now sleeping like a baby because of the help of your organisation."
Our ServiceCitizens Advice Trafford helps people resolve their legal, money and other problems by providing information and advice and by influencing policymakers.
We use evidence of our clients’ problems to campaign for improvements in laws and services that affect everyone. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination.
Without funding and volunteers Citizens Advice Trafford could not continue to provide its services in Trafford. Every Citizens Advice Bureau is an independent registered charity.
How we advise
There are several ways we can help you to resolve your problems. We start off by holding a short interview with you to better understand what the next step should be. Our volunteer advisors don't tell you what to do, but will explain your options and hep you understand the possible outcomes of the different courses of action.
We can provide advice and information on a wide variety of issues from welfare benefits to employment to faulty kettles and everything in-between. Whoever you are, whatever the problem we will do our best to help you.
We provide advice and information services across the borough of Trafford in a number of ways which include:
