Who we are
We’re an independent charity that provides information, advice and support. We also work to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives.
We help people get the support they need and enable them to manage their lives better in times of crisis. Life is complicated and things can go wrong for all of us. Our free, impartial advice is crucial and highly valuable to individuals, the Council, government and society as a whole.
We’re a member of Citizens Advice, a network of over 300
At Citizens Advice Wandsworth we know that life can be complicated – sometimes things can go wrong for all of us and high quality advice at a time of crisis can make all the difference. Last year we helped thousands of people to resolve their problems by telephone, email, from outreach settings across our diverse borough, and from our centres in Roehampton and Battersea.
With a turnover of more than £2m, we deliver innovative and creative advice projects, have strong local community partnerships, and campaign on the issues that matter to the people we support.
If you want to help shape a thriving local advice agency, join us and help us continue to build on our strong foundations, deliver high quality services, and empower our staff and volunteers to do what matters most – make a real difference to people’s lives in Wandsworth.
You don’t have to have been a trustee before, but we are looking for someone with an finance and accountancy background.
We welcome candidates from any background who think they can contribute as a trustee, however we particularly want to encourage people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds to ensure our board continues to be representative of our community. The role is unpaid, but we do cover reasonable expenses and pay for training relevant to the role.
