Support us

Citizens Advice Lewisham is a local charity that has been supporting Lewisham residents for over 80 years.

Your support is vital in helping us make a difference

A lot has changed since we first opened our doors but our commitment to providing free and independent advice, especially for the most vulnerable  remains unchanged.  As a charity we rely on funding and the support of people like you to continue to make a difference.

 

All donations, small or large, will go a long way towards direct support for people in hardship or increasing our capacity to train volunteers and deliver more advice.

 

If you’d like to help us keep our services free and accessible to Lewisham residents, you can support us in the following ways:

Last year...

we delivered our service with the support of over 40 paid staff, 60+ volunteers and 6 volunteer Honorary Legal Advisers.

Our impact reached...

over 24,000 Lewisham residents and we achieved over £5.6 million in financial outcomes for our clients. A 100% of our clients would reccomend our service to others.

Every Penny Counts...

£5 will provide a telephone advice session to someone in need

£10 will provide a face-to-face advice appointment so that someone can move forward with their life

£100 will allow a specialist advisor to be there daily for people in Lewisham

£1500 will train one of our dedicated volunteers – although it can cost up to £3,000 to do this to a more specialist level
