Why You Should Support Your Local Citizens Advice

Our local Citizens Advice serves a community of 40,000 people. The service helps people to help themselves.

Recent research has shown that at least one in three people have a problem relating to a legal, debt or money issues; with housing, domestic violence, welfare benefits, debt and employment issues being the majority of the enquries.

Every month, Citizens Advice Aylesbury Vale supports hundreds of people and families with problems affecting their lives.

The Queen's Award

In 2011 the Buckingham, Winslow & District Citizens Advice was announced as one of 130 winners of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the equivalent of an MBE for groups of volunteers who work for the good of their local community.

This prestigious UK national honour recognises the outstanding voluntary contributions and sets the benchmark for excellence on volunteering, with all work being judges to the highest standard.

“The Queen’s Award is a tremendous accolade for Buckingham, Winslow & District CA. Hugely well deserved and wonderfully reassuring for all those who need to turn to the CA for advice.”

Rt Hon John Bercow
MP for Buckingham
Speaker of the House of Commons

Citizens Advice Aylesbury Vale (CAAV)

Working with its major funder, Aylesbury Vale District Council, the bureau recently merged with Aylesbury Citizens Advice to form a new service called Citizens Advice Aylesbury Vale (or CAAV). However, this will not affect the service that our local office is able to provide to our local community, and BACAB funds will continue to be used exclusively to support our local area.
