Citizens Advice LeicesterShire

Citizens Advice LeicesterShire is a registered charity providing advice services in Leicestershire and Leicester City.

The majority of our work is helping people with benefit enquiries and money advice. In total we negotiated on just over £7 million worth of debt; rescheduling or reducing the debts to make people's lives more sustainable. We also generated an estimated total of over £14 million worth additional income for our clients.

Our service makes a real contribution to the most deprived individuals and communities and we make a real difference to people’s lives. We support local economies by maximising residents’ income, and increase the circulation of money in the local area by helping people claim benefits they are entitled to.

Citizens Advice LeicesterShire works in partnership with local service providers in the voluntary and statutory sectors and provides outreach advice services within the community targeting our service towards people most likely to be socially excluded.
