Our services are delivered by 30 paid staff members and 50 volunteers who are led by a small management team.
Citizens Advice Barnet is run by a Board of Trustees (10) led by Chair – Ben Ingber.
Citizens Advice Barnet is funded by the London Borough of Barnet, Macmillan Cancer Support, Trust for London and London Legal Support Trust.
The 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 is available equally to everybody who seeks its help, regardless of race, gender, sexuality or disability. Citizens Advice Barnet is affiliated to Citizens Advice, which is the national association of Citizens Advice and the organisation is wholly independent.
