Mission Statement

We help people resolve their legal, money and other problems by providing free, independent and confidential advice, and by influencing policymakers.

We operate from bureaux in Cranleigh, Farnham, Godalming and Haslemere, offering a five days-a-week telephone, drop-in and appointment service.  We have over 160 volunteers across our offices, undertaking many roles.  These include fundraisers, trustees, administrators, receptionists, social policy campaigners, advisers and assessors.

We use the information we gather carrying out this work to campaign for social justice, so that individuals do not suffer through a lack of knowledge or an inability to express themselves effectively.
