Who we are

Citizens Advice Westminster was one of the very first bureau founded in 1939. From its origins as an emergency service during the second World War, it has become a frontline essential advice and information service for all those living in Westminster and surrounding areas. We provide free, confidential and impartial information and advice to the residents of the City of Westminster.

Citizens Advice Westminster is a member of the national Citizens Advice service. It is also an independent registered charity governed by a Board of Trustees.

The Board is responsible for taking a high-level overview of the Charity and its place in the community and using that to make long-term decisions about strategic direction and values, and to safeguard the good name and ethos of the organisation and the national Citizens Advice service.

Our Board of Trustees are the first and final decision-making authority within Citizens Advice Westminster.  The Board of Trustees is collectively responsible for the governance of the organisation, including setting an overall vision.
