Citizens Advice West Suffolk
Who we are
Citizens Advice West Suffolk is a local charity. We give people the knowledge and confidence they need to find their way forward. We offer free, confidential advice to everyone in West Suffolk
Over 80% of our work force are volunteers, who give their time to be receptionists, advisers, administrative support, some specialist caseworkers and financial capability trainers.
As well as providing free information and advice across our 5 sites, we also take an active role in campaigning to prevent problems. For example we have a team of volunteer trainers who work in the community delivering free training in money management to help people make more informed choices and to know how to get further help.

'The Financial world is complicated, and if you don't know what you're doing it's easy to get ripped off. And while I've been chomping on about getting financial education in schools, no where is it more important that for those who are vunerable like special needs schools. Therefore, I'm chuffed to hear the great work of Suffolk West CAB and that's its inspired forward thinking at the Priory School to ensure when they leave their pupils will be better equipped.'
