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 our county Trading Standards Service, many consumer and support groups, housing associations, and a range of advice agencies from Banbury to Henley and Witney to Wantage. Based at Oxford CAB, the Consumer Partnership provides local leadership in protecting, informing and empowering consumers through campaigning and education. You will often hear us on local radio talking about consumer matters.

After successful campaigns on payday loans, scams and cold-calling, 2015 saw a renewed focus on energy matters with not only Big Energy Saving Week in October but also new energy projects for people in fuel poverty, those on prepayment meters etc. National Consumer Week was all about the new Consumer Rights Act which now includes online shopping.


Why volunteer for us?

All sorts of people volunteer for many different reasons, but one thing that unites them all is that they find it challenging, rewarding and varied. Volunteering provides an opportunity to learn new skills and to develop existing ones.

In any role, you will develop your skills in a number of valuable areas, like communication, IT and dealing with the public, as well as increasing your self-confidence through practical hands-on experience. In addition, CAB adviser training is respected and valued throughout the advice sector.


Campaigning for change

Research and Campaigns is the second of our twin aims as a service. Previously known as Social Policy it is all about using our unique insights into the problems people face in order to work for change. So, whether the cause of a client's problem is an unfair policy or poor practice or a bad piece of legislation, we will do our research and then speak up for our clients and campaign for a fairer society.
