Citizens Advice Lewisham

Citizens Advice Lewisham (CAL) is the largest voluntary organisation in Lewisham. With 30 staff and usually around 50 volunteers, we provide a range of general advice services covering everything from consumer issues such as problems with mobile phone contracts to family disputes, food vouchers, problems with landlords and support for benefit claims.


Additionally, we have contracts to run debt advice, housing outreach, social prescribing support and energy advice. We host the new Lewisham Law Centre (LLC) providing legal aid on housing, immigration and employment.  This is augmented by a  network of Honorary Legal Advisors who provided one legal advice on a pro bono basis.  


CAL is an independent local charity and affiliated to the national charity Citizens Advice.
