Welcome to the Citizens Advice Bureau discussion board which aims to help people get started on selected topics.
Post your queries in the relevant board below and a Citizens Advice representative will aim to answer your question within 2 working days.
If you’re already receiving support and advice from your local CAB, then please continue your discussion with them rather than post on this board.Please be aware, this type of forum collaboration is new for MSE so it’s currently a trial. We hope it is well used, but as we’ll all be finding our feet, please be patient as it grows.
Citzens Advice has several bureau advisers on this board, based around England & Wales, initially answering questions on four different topics:
· dealing with debts and debt disputes – see board
· housing benefit – see board
· tax credits & benefits for people in work or looking for work – see board
· your basic rights at work and redundancy problems – see board
You’ll recognise a CAB adviser as their username will be displayed in bold purple, eg CAB Malvern Hills representative, and have a special representative signature.
If you have a question about other topics or issues, please see if the Citizens Advice self-help website has the information you need Adviceguide
. If you need more help, please contact your local bureau. You can get their details from the CAB directory
. Comments on CAB services are always welcome, so please let it know what you think using its Feedback form
.As usual, please report any inappropriate/illegal posts by clicking the Report button in the bottom right corner and don’t reply. The CAB advisers aren’t part of the MSE Forum Team and aren’t there to deal with this so please don’t contact them. This is for their sanity as much as ours! This board’s for help, not judgement so it’s not the place for discussion about benefits political policy.
