Who We Are
Community Advice Ards and North Down helps people resolve many problems including debt, social security benefits, housing, legal, health, discrimination, employment, immigration, tax, relationship and consumer issues.
Community Advice Ards and North Down is a registered charity reliant on trained advisers (both paid and volunteer) and funded by money from Ards and North Down Borough Council, the Department for Communities and MacMillan Cancer Support. This helps us to provide and maintain a vital service to local communities.
We aim to provide the advice people need for the problems they face and improve the policies and practices that affect people's lives.
We provide free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination.
