About us

Citizens Advice Richmond is an independent local charity providing information and advice to anyone who lives, works or studies in Richmond borough. Our service is free, confidential and impartial. We aim to empower people to resolve their problems and change their lives for the better. We are a member of the national Citizens Advice service, a network of over 270 local advice centres in England and Wales.

As well as giving advice we aim to prevent the problems that affect people’s lives:

  • Campaigning for change
    – we collect evidence of the impact on our clients of practices and
    policies that cause their problems and we campaign to get a fairer deal
    for everyone
  • Money education
    – we offer courses, workshops and one-to-one help to empower people to
    avoid debt and increase confidence about personal finances

Partner organisations which have gained authorisation to refer clients to us should use the 3rd Party Referral Form which can be found here.

Citizens Advice Richmond is not part of the national or local government and so we need to raise funds to maintain and expand our services.

Please consider supporting our advice and prevention work – the more money we can raise, the more people we can help.
