The Buckingham Area Community Advice Bureau “BACAB” Foundation is an independent registered charity set up to ensure that the Citizens’ Advice in Buckingham, Winslow and the surrounding area is sufficiently funded to provide its core service to the local community.
We serve a population of over 40,000 people
in two towns (Buckingham and Winslow)
and 56 outlying parishes
The Citizens Advice Service offers free, independent and confidential advice. It started out in 1939 as an emergency service, and has since evolved into a professional national agency. The CA gives advice and helps solve problems, including debt and consumer issues, benefits, housing, legal matters, employment, and immigration. Advisers can help fill out forms, write letters, negotiate with creditors and represent clients at court or tribunal.
At BACAB we have identified these services as crucial to our local community, and were set up specifically to ensure that they can still be effectively provided by trained and dedicated staff to the people of Buckingham, Winslow and the local District. We believe it is essential to maintain this support to those most vulnerable in our own community.
