Citizens Advice Bureau for help local community

In this age of social media, Google, and smartphones it sometimes seems like information is always just a click away, but that hasn’t stopped an increasing number of New Zealanders turning to their local Citizens Advice Bureau for information and advice.
Citizens Advice Bureau Dunedin volunteers had over 13,000 calls last year. Some of the most common types of enquiries were issues ranging from immigration, housing and employment to consumer rights, health and family.
People really appreciate the chance to talk to someone in person about their problems. We provide a person to person advice service that is independent, confidential and free of charge.

“We have a great group of well trained volunteers who are here to help, and have access to huge information resources including a referral database. So if we don’t have the answer we will be able to point you to someone that does.
We also have a Consumer Service, Client Support Service, Justice of the Peace Service as well as an Outreach Service at the Mosgiel Library on a Wednesday 11.30am – 1.30pm.
“There’s heaps of great information to help with your problems on our website, but sometimes it helps to talk about your issue with someone. You can just pop into Citizens Advice Bureau Dunedin at Community House, 301 Moray Place  or call 03 471 6166, 0800 367 222 and we can help you work through your options.
Citizens Advice Bureaux is an independent community organisation offering a free, confidential and independent service of information, assistance and referral.
