What We Do


How BRANCAB Supports our Community


BRANCAB is a major provider of quality assured advice and information in the Warwickshire area and has helped many thousands of local people to resolve their problems.

The Service is delivered by a team of highly trained volunteer advisers from the local community, who are supported by a dedicated number of qualified advisers, as well as our national organisation, Citizens Advice.

The Service provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on the problems they face and informing them of their rights and responsibilities. BRANCAB aims to improve the policies and practices that affect people's lives.

We offer a specialised casework service for those with multiple debt problems and those having problems with housing matters including eviction and possession.
