A Message from our CEO
For over 80 years Citizens Advice Merton and Lambeth had been entirely dependent on commissioned income, grants and donations to fund our services, which are then provided free to our local communities.
We are an independent advice and support charity. Our advice is confidential and independent, and our support is often fundamental to our communities.
Today, our services are more in demand than ever before. And looking forward, we can only see this demand continuing to grow.
Survival for many people is becoming progressively more difficult as families, with or without children and grandchildren, are faced with growing financial, relationship or health issues. Disability, work, discrimination are all factors that could be contributing to mental stress.
Our role is to do everything we can to mitigate as many of these problems as we can for each and every individual within our community. We do this by offering professional and experienced support, ensuring they do not have to face these issues alone.
Leaving a gift to your local Citizens Advice, whatever the amount, benefits you, your family and the whole community, because every donation makes a real difference to a charity like ours. It enables us to continue delivering essential advice services to our local people and their families. You can help us to achieve that aim today.
Of course, every donation makes a real difference to a charity like ours. All donations to Citizens Advice Merton and Lambeth enable us to continue delivering essential advice services to local people and families.
If you would like to talk to me first about a donation or legacy, or want to talk to me about fundraising, please contact me, Suzanne Hudson at Suzanne.firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of us all,
Here are some examples of how your donation can support us:
£5 supports a volunteer’s travel expenses to answer 6 calls to our Adviceline
£50 supports an emergency advice appointment
£500 enables us to train a volunteer to then help hundreds of clients
£1,000 enables us employ a fully trained adviser
Remember, if you’re a UK taxpayer we have a ‘Gift Aid’ form that will increase your donation by 20% – at no extra cost! Make sure you let us know!
