40k for 40 Years
To mark the 40th anniversary of Citizens Advice Bristol, we are running a '40k for 40 years' campaign. We want to be here providing free, confidential and impartial advice to the people of Bristol for the next 40 years – and beyond! Any donations made will enable us to do so.
We have grown from a small operation that first opened its doors in 1977 to become one of Bristol’s largest advice agencies, dealing with over 32,000 enquiries each year. We help people with a wide range of issues, including debt, benefits, housing, family, immigration, employment – and everything in between! As an independent charity, our advice is always free, impartial and completely confidential.
Each decade has brought difficulties as a result of fluctuating economies and government policies. Most recently, the cuts to legal aid, benefits and essential services have deeply affected our clients. And as the cost of living continues to rise above wage growth, we see people with more and more difficult problems.
In 2016/7, we supported 8214 clients and dealt with 36,022 issues. We helped clients manage £5,744,670 of debts and secured £9,061,384 in benefits entitlements. For every £1 invested in Citizens Advice Bristol, we contribute far more in benefits to individuals, fiscal benefits, and public value.
As a charity, we rely on the support and generosity of companies, grant-making trusts and members of the public. People like you. We gratefully welcome any financial contribution, no matter how small.
Please help us by giving whatever you can by clicking the ‘Donate Now' button below. You will be taken to our fundraising page where you can make your donation easily and securely.
All the money we receive will go directly into keeping our charity operating and ensuring our services are as effective as possible.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
