How are you managed?
We are a Registered Charity and a private company limited by guarantee. We are managed by a volunteer Trustee Board, some of whom are also Directors of the Company, made up of local people, local councilors and representatives from business.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Trustee please see our Volunteer Page.
We are members of the national Citizens Advice organisation who set strict standards for the running of the service and regularly audit the quality of our advice and the overall management of the service.
We also hold the Advice Quality Standard for General Help and Casework in Welfare Benefits (previously the Community Legal Service Quality Mark). Our debt advice work is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
How are you funded?
Although we are mainly staffed by volunteers we still need money to run the local service. We receive no money from central government but do receive grants from local government.
However this does not cover our total outgoings and we need to raise additional funds to maintain the service.
We are a registered charity and are dependent on donations from the local community. Our Support Us page explains how you can help.
