Local advice services
From losing a job to moving onto a different kind of benefit, we know how much a change in circumstances can affect you. If you ever need advice or support to manage money, debt or a change in circumstance, please get in touch with us on 020 7974 4444 or if you’re struggling with council tax arrears, call 020 7974 6414.
We also work closely with organisations in our local voluntary and community sector (VCS) and Strategic Partner Fund who can also give you advice and support on specific issues.
Camden Advice Network
The new Camden Advice Network, made up of 12 local Camden organisations, launched in April. The network offers free and independent advice across a range of specialist topics, working with a diverse range of communities within Camden. This network aims to make sure that residents have access to high quality advice services.
Due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the network has not begun in the way we had initially intended, however all its members have quickly adapted their ways of working to make sure that they are able to offer an advice service for our Camden residents. All services are free of charge for residents and you are able to contact any of the organisations directly for support.
We have included the contact details for all the Camden Advice Network members so you know where to go for specialist advice services.
