Citizens Advice Bristol opened its doors for the very first time on 19th April 1977. Over the decades, the city of Bristol has grown and changed and we, in turn, have changed in response to the community we serve. This has meant that alongside our generalist service we have seen the development of a number of specialist advice projects offering a higher level of casework support, such as the Macmillan project for people receiving treatment for cancer, or Ask us; a service for 16-25 year olds. To find out more about our projects and how to access them click here.
Though we have changed the core of who we are has remained the same. That is we are a local charity that aims to provide free, independent, impartial and confidential advice to whoever may need it. Also, volunteers are at the heart of all we do here. In fact, volunteers give their time to work in almost every aspect of our organisation from admin and advising to campaigning and research - without them there would be no us!
