Starting from today, we have simplified how you get in touch with Citizens Advice Edinburgh. You can now contact any of our Bureau locations to book an appointment for 100% free, independent, impartial, and confidential advice by phoning a single telephone number.
As the end of the year approaches, I can reflect on great service that Citizens Advice Edinburgh has continued to provide to those in need of independent and impartial advice and support in the city. Over the last year we have dealt with 28,000 enquiries leading to us resolving over 43,000 issues and helping some of the most vulnerable in our community deal with over £4 million of unmanageable debt. With our advice and support, clients in Edinburgh achieved nearly £3 million of financial gain, through access to welfare entitlement, resolving debt, employment and consumer rights issues.
Today we are pleased to announce the online publication of our 2015/2016 annual review!

Following the referendum result on Friday 24th June, Citizens Advice have prepared an advice overview of how you may be affected. Your rights around work, claiming benefits and life in the UK won’t change unless new laws are passed. This will take time.
