Starting in June Citizens Advice Gateshead will be available twice a week at the Community Centre in Chopwell.

Available to all Chopwell, Highfield and area residents, this free, impartial and independent advice and information service can help you with benefits, managing debt, housing problems and many other issues. You can drop in on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9:30 and 13:00. No appointment is needed although you may need to wait.

It will help the Citizens Advice Gateshead advisers if you bring with you any paperwork you might have about the issues you want to discuss. The service is independent and confidential and is provided by Citizens Advice Gateshead, funded by Gateshead Council and supported by local people.
