About Us

Breckland Advice Services is an advice project funded by Big Lottery which is bringing together advice agencies in Breckland to work in a more agile and cost effective way and includes advice and preventative support to help people resolve their problems with debt, benefits, employment, housing, discrimination, living and working in the UK and many more issues.

Clients now have improved access to multi agency advice at Advice Hubs in Thetford Citizens’ Advice Bureau (Breckland House) and Dereham Citizens’ Advice Bureau. A further Advice Hub at Watton Citizens’ Advice Bureau will be opening in 2015.

The partners in the project include: Mid Norfolk CAB, Thetford, Diss and District CAB, Keystone Development Trust’s META project which advises and supports migrant workers, Flagship Housing Association which is interested in helping at risk families who will be affected by the Welfare Reform changes, Equal Lives a user led charity for disabled people offering specialist benefits and legal advice and Norfolk Community Law Service offering specialist legal advice and immigration and entitlement advice for EEA Nationals. The project also has the full support of Breckland Council which is very keen for advice agencies to work together more, reduce duplication and share resources.
