Grimsby, Cleethorpes & District Citizens Advice Bureau
Grimsby, Cleethorpes & District Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities (learn about our advice services). Founded in 1939, we are a successful and busy Bureau. We advise on around 1,000 problems each month.
Our twin aim is to gather data which is used to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives (see social policy)
We provide advice both face to face at our main branch or via our outreach sessions throughout the district & over the phone via our Adviceline service.
The Citizens Advice Bureau is a charity that depends on income from funders to meet our service aims. We are staffed mainly by volunteers who give up their time to perform adviser, administration and reception duties.
Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Citizens Advice Bureau and the volunteer role underpins all our client focused and social policy work. We also have paid staff in administration, specialist caseworker, supervisor and managerial roles.
We are an independent charity…
Grimsby, Cleethorpes & District CAB are an independent charity. We rely on the donations of generous individuals to keep essential services running.
Any donations no matter how small are gratefully received.
We are committed to:
– Support and empower people who use our service, volunteer or work for us;
– Promote the diversity of individuals together with their shared skills and experiences and encourage people to access their rights, exercise their responsibilities and find solutions to their problems. We believe this is the best way to better the lives of those who use our service or work and volunteer for us.
What is Adviceline?
Advice Line is a national telephone number but will connect people to the Lincolnshire Adviceline Group and usually you will be answered by a trained assessor in the Grimsby CAB office who will be able to offer the help you need. Calling 03444 111 444 could save you time and money and help you get a service without having to travel to the CAB.
