Community Advice Works

Who We Are:

Community Advice Works has existed since the 1960s (when it was formerly known as 170 Community Project). Since that time, we have developed and delivered a wide range of services, with a focus on providing advice and advocacy services to the most vulnerable in our community. From specialist welfare advice to domestic abuse advocacy we have built a strong reputation for providing high quality and independent person-centred support. In the last financial year, our specialist welfare benefits team recorded nearly 2000 positive outcomes for our clients, and added financial gains of over £603,000 to the local community.

Who We Can Help:

People who work and live in Lewisham.

Area of Advice:

We offer general, benefits, debt, employment, housing, Level 1 immigration and consumer advice. We also offer casework in welfare benefits and housing.
