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. Past campaigns around Oxfordshire have covered, payday loans, used cars, energy saving, and, most recently in May 2014, energy saving, and scams.

Most recently we focused on the consumer aspects of the system of assessments for sickness and disability benefits, with a Forum on disability issues and an appearance on Radio Oxford.
