LIVERPOOL Community Advice can trace its history back to 1939 when the present organisation opened in the City Centre as one of the first Citizens Advice Bureaux in the country. In April 2016 Liverpool CAB transformed itself into LCA – Liverpool Community Advice – with the same staff in the same location offering the same services on a free, non-judgemental and confidential basis. As an independent, registered charity they can advise people of their rights on a range of issues such as debt and money matters, consumer problems, employment disputes and welfare rights claims and appeals. They also have specialist services in Housing and can help with any aspect of housing problems, including possession and eviction processes and disrepair concerns. They can represent clients in the Civil Court on housing matters and bankruptcy proceedings. LCA are committed to helping tenants and owner occupiers with housing matters and have recently explored partnership working with estate agent Andrew Louis to ensure people can receive the help and advice they need in relation to housing problems. They also help people save money by getting them the best deals on their energy tariffs, assisting with household budgeting and providing guidance on all aspects of the banking, saving and credit provision. If you need advice please contact LCA on: firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.liverpoolcommunityadvice.org.uk/ 0151 294 3041 LCA is also keen to hear from local businesses to discuss sponsorship or other means of support.
