Did you know that Citizens Advice Cornwall is an independent charity?

Many people assume that Citizens Advice is part of, or run by, the government or local authority, and are surprised to learn that every Citizens Advice is in fact an independent charity. Like any charity we are reliant on the support of a wide range of funders including charitable trusts, companies and individuals, and local and central government.

Many people are also surprised to learn that the majority of the Citizens Advice team are volunteers – including our advisers & telephone assessors, and our board of Trustees. Citizens Advice is truly an effort by the community for the community.

Why support Citizens Advice Cornwall?

Citizens Advice Cornwall is a vital part of the fabric of our community. The first bureau in Cornwall (after the war-era Citizens Advice Bureaux were opened and then swiftly closed following the conclusion of the war) was established in 1972, meaning we have been working in our community for over 48 years. We are a source of professional advice that is impartial, confidential, independent and free, on a huge range of issues. Topics such as relationship issues, employment problems or bereavement can suddenly come out of the blue. Nobody expects to find themselves in these situations, and we are here to support people when they don’t know where else to turn. However in this economic climate, being a charity funded by various sources, our funds are unable to keep pace with the increasing demand for our services. Any financial contribution no matter how small is gratefully received, as it will help us to meet that demand. Please consider making a donation today.
