About us

Barking and Dagenham CAB service is a registered charity that provides information and advice on issues such as housing, welfare benefits, employment, debt and relationship breakdown. We are also able to provide specialist advice for clients experiencing discrimination.

Our general advice service is available to people who live or work in the borough. However, if you live and work outside of the borough we may be able to help you if your enquiry concerns debt and you qualify for legal aid. You may get legal aid if you are on a low income. We take social policy action on local and national issues. We are free, confidential, independent and impartial.


Our highly trained volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds and help with everything we do.
