We are a local charity which operates under the names of Citizens Advice Stroud District and Citizens Advice Cotswold District.
We provide free, independent, impartial and confidential advice across the Stroud and Cotswold districts of Gloucestershire and we work to empower and enable people to use that advice to solve their problems, whatever they may be.
We influence the development of social policies and services, both locally and nationally.
We believe in:
providing a free, confidential, impartial and independent service
empowering and enabling people to implement the advice
reaching out to people when they are most vulnerable
high quality advice being available to ALL
valuing diversity, promoting equality and challenging discrimination
treating everyone with respect
being a strong, local and independent voluntary organisation
Our team of highly-trained volunteers and experienced specialist case workers provide a full range of advice services which you can access in whatever way suits you best:
Our main offices are in Stroud and Cirencester but we also offer drop-in sessions and appointments at various other locations across the Stroud and Cotswold districts.

Volunteer Advisers Needed
Information Session 20 July at 3:15pm
Sheila Orson, our Training Officer, will be holding an information session for people interested in training to be an adviser. We need people who have 9 hours a week spare, are interested in helping people resolve their problems and enjoy a challenge. Pippa, one of our volunteers told us, 'It is really rewarding to know you have helped someone resolve their problem in a confidential and non-judgemental way. The training is excellent, with a lot of support and back up.'
