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.


21,600 highly trained volunteers support the delivery of our work nationally. They come from all sorts of backgrounds and help with everything we do. Could you join them?

The Citizens Advice network

Our network provides free, confidential and impartial advice and campaigns on big issues affecting people’s lives.

Our goal is to help everyone find a way forward, whatever problem they face.

We're all independent charities and are part of the Citizens Advice network across England and Wales.

Support us

Without the generous support of people up and down the country, we couldn't continue to do the work we do.
