Bristol Citizens Advice Bureau provides free, impartial advice and information on a range of issues. The bureau can help with most everyday problems from employment to housing and debt.
Before using the service it is advisable to visit their national websitewww.adviceguide.org.uk where there is information about all the main areas of advice including: Benefits, Debt, Housing, Employment, Consumer, Family, etc.
If you still need information or advice the bureau runs a ‘drop-in’ at the Bristol Advice Point. A gateway assessment is a short interview that explores your enquiry and assesses what your advice needs are. The assessment many conclude that you require specialist advice, another agency is better suited to help you, or you need assisted self help.
