Welcome to Citizens Advice Oxfordshire


The Citizens Advice service aims: -

  • To provide the advice people need for the problems they face
  • To improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives

The service provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities. It values diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination.

Consumer Empowerment

The Consumer Empowerment Partnership (CEP) in Oxfordshire includes Oxfordshire's Trading Standards Service, consumer and support groups, housing associations, and advice agencies from Banbury to Henley. Based at Oxford CAB, the Consumer Partnership provides local leadership in protecting, informing and empowering consumers through campaigning and education. Past campaigns around Oxfordshire have covered scams, payday loans, used cars and, most recently, energy saving.

It is now turning its attention to the system of assessments for benefits for those who are sick or disabled.
