We are a formal partner of Wiltshire Council, who fund the majority of our core service.
 
We are also funded, or partly funded via Wiltshire Council to provide the following projects:
  • Carers

Our Carers Project, funded by Wiltshire Council and the CCG, works closely with Carer Support Wiltshire to provide benefit and money advice to people who are caring for someone in a non professional capacity, often a family member but sometimes a friend or neighbour.
  • Multiply
Through Wiltshire Council, we are funded to provide money and budgeting advice, as part of the Multiply programme to help adults improve their numeracy skills. 
  • Resettlement Project
This project provides debt and benefit advice to families recently relocated to the UK under the Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme. Wiltshire Council provides the overarching support and co-ordinates a series of agencies. In addition to advice and casework, we administer and distribute the initial financial support available to the families.
  

We are also funded by other organisations to provide specific projects, these include:

  • Macmillan
This project provides welfare benefits advice to people affected by cancer.
  • MaPS Debt Advice Project

Citizens Advice is one of the lead agreement holders for the Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) funded debt advice project. Since 2017, we have been funded to deliver this service locally.

  • MS Society
This project, funded by the MS Society, provides benefits advice to people in Wiltshire affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS), including their families and immediate carers.
  • National Lottery

The National Lottery Community Fund LogoWe have received a National Lottery award from The National Lottery Community Fund, which distributes money raised by National Lottery players for good causes, for a new project that will start in the second half of 2023.

Pension Wise is a guidance service set up to help people understand their options under the pension freedoms. We deliver Pension Wise appointments in a number of locations, including Bristol, Swindon, Yate as well as the main areas of Wiltshire, to people aged 50 and over, with a defined contribution pension. Pension Wise is now part of MoneyHelper.
