How we can help

Citizens Advice Portsmouth has operated in Portsmouth for more than 75 years.

We offer free, impartial and confidential advice in person, on the telephone and online to the people of Portsmouth and surrounding areas.

If you need advice about debts, housing, benefits, employment, family breakdown or your rights then we can help you.

With our teams of advisers made up from both paid staff and volunteers we run a Debt Advice Centre at Ark Royal House, Winston Churchill Avenue (close to the City Centre and Central Police Station).  The Centre is also open for Generalist Advice on Wednesday's.

Our Cosham office supports the residents of Cosham and Paulsgrove with advice on all subjects available two days a week, with a specialist debt adviser in situ every Thursday.
