Supporting Local Councils in Leicestershire & Rutland

Citizen's Advice Leicestershire - Contact Details

Our colleagues at the CAB in Leicestershire have asked us to promote their contact numbers and services to our member councils. We know that parish and town councils provide a crucial service by signposting parishioners to local support services, and we know that the support services listed below will be of use to many people during these difficult times.

Anyone needing advice can ring 0808 2787970 (City) and 0808 2787854 (County) between 9am and 4.30pm on weekdays. Non-urgent or out of hours enquiries can be made by email from our website. In addition to our generalist services, we also offer the following specialist advice:
