Runnymede and Spelthorne Citizens Advice Bureau is a fully independent registered charity with its own volunteer Trustee Board. The bureau is a member of the national Citizens Advice association. The aims of Citizens Advice are:-
The service provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities. It values diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination.
All of our advisers are unpaid volunteers who give their time to help their fellow citizens. They are supported by the bureau management team who are paid employees. Our Citizens Advice consultants, local solicitors and other contacts provide additional support.
The bureau is run by a Trustee Board made up of local people. We are a registered charity and hold a public meeting once a year where the committee is elected. We need more volunteers for various tasks including advising, administration or joining the Trustee Board. If you would like to offer your time please contact the manager.
Our offices in Addlestone and associated running costs are provided by Runnymede Borough Council. Our offices in Sunbury and associated running costs are provided by Spelthorne Borough Council. The Abraham Cowley Unit is funded by local Primary Care Trusts.
We are a registered charity and rely on grants and donations. If you would like to make a donation to the Bureau, please click here:
