Citizens Advice

Join us on foursquare and we’ll help you discover the story behind the places you check-in at.

The Citizens Advice service helps people resolve their legal, money and other problems by providing free, independent and confidential advice, and by influencing policymakers.

With 26,000 volunteers and staff giving advice from over 3,500 community locations we know what's going on in thousands of places across England and Wales. Now we’re going to use the local knowledge we pick-up to show people the real stories behind the places you check-in at.


All the tips here are based on constituency maps, so if we say "this area" we're referring to the constituency you're in.

All stats used are for the 2010/11 (April - March) year and any questions, comments or requests please get in touch via Twitter.
