Citizens Advice Peterborough
Citizens Advice Peterborough are a charity that can provide free, confidential and impartial advice to your patients. Through our previous work with Boroughbury Medical Practice we have managed to see numerous patients, which has included helping people who have been left sofa surfing and living in their car to those who have been unknowingly suffering with domestic psychological abuse.
We are available to help with almost any matter, whether this be in relation to their housing situation, debts, benefits, employment rights or any other issue. We will look beyond the main issue to find all other cross cutting problems and underlying causes in order to help your patients resolve their problems, improve their wellbeing and prevent potential future issues.
