working together for a fairer society

Citizens Advice Hampshire is a consortium of independent Citizens Advice Bureaux. We are a charity working together to improve advice services for the people of Hampshire.

Here at Citizens Advice Hampshire we are committed to making Hampshire and the Isle of Wight a fairer place to live and work. Although our small team does not deliver front line services we work in partnership with Bureaux and Partners across the county and three unitary authorities. We are formed as a consortium by a number of Bureaux. These are listed on our about us page.
