Advising Communities

Advising Communities offers generalist advice in welfare benefits, debt, housing, immigration, employment, consumer and other generalist issues. We provide specialist advice on welfare benefits, debt and housing, but cannot offer representation at Tribunal or County Court.

Advising Communities offer a range of general advice, as well as special outreach sessions for members of the Latin American community, plus Sure Start sessions for parents and carers of children under five, including expectant mothers.


Our drop-in service is for those who have not received any advice or support from us before. You must also live, work or study in the London Borough of Southwark. We are open:

Monday 9:00am - 1:00pm
Tuesday 9:00am - 12:00pm
Wednesday 9:00am - 12:00pm
