About this cause
We are a local independent charity who provide free, independent, and impartial advice to people in the Guildford borough. We have two key aims: to provide the advice people need for problems they face and to improve policies and practices that affect people’s lives. We give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward – whoever they are and whatever their problem.
