Advice Services

What does it do?

Our trained volunteers cover a number of topics such as benefit entitlement, DLA applications, employment rights, consumer rights and many more through our drop in sessions.  We also have specialist caseworkers who help clients with debt problems on a longer term basis.  New for 2010 – we are authorized by the Vale of White Horse District Council to verify original documents required for council tax or housing benefit applications.  We also hold Bus Pass application forms.

Local solicitors provide free legal advice surgeries once a fortnight on Wednesday afternoons.  Please note you will need to speak to one of our advisors before being allocated a surgery appointment.  Appointments are 20 minutes duration for free advice but the solicitor will charge if instructed to act for you.

The Independent Advice Centre is licensed for debt counselling by the Office of Fair Trading.  At busy times we may operate a waiting list for new debt clients.
