Hackney Citizens Advice Bureau finds new home

Hackney Citizens Advice Bureau has moved to new and improved offices. For more than 40 years Hackney CAB has advised residents on their legal, money and other issues.

The organisation works in partnership with the Council, statutory and private sectors, housing associations and other voluntary organisations. Mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe and Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care and Culture, represented the Council at the official opening of the new offices at 300 Mare Street, last month.

Mayor Pipe said: “For decades Hackney’s Citizens Advice Bureau has been working hard on behalf of the people of Hackney; including some of our most vulnerable residents. It has helped thousands of people to avoid homelessness and bankruptcy, helped people to secure jobs through its excellent volunteer programme, and provided legal advice which would otherwise be unaffordable.

“I hope the team and residents enjoy these new offices and that the new environment will help the CAB to continue their excellent work in the borough.”

Hackney Citizens Advise Bureau advises on debt, welfare benefits, immigration, employment, housing, consumer issues, and education. They are open from Monday to Thursday: 8.30am - 5pm and Friday: 9.30am – 5pm. Telephone: 020 8525 6350.
