About us

Citizens Advice Shropshire (CAS) has been part of the local community since 1939. We provide free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone  and campaign to improve the policies that affect people’s lives.

CAS also provide specialist services including:

  • Shropshire Information Advice and Support Service (IASS) acts as a first point of contact for parents and carers of children and for young people aged up to 25 who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) or related health and social care needs.
  • Pension Wise is a free and impartial government guidance service about the different ways you can take money from your pension.
  • Our debt team provides specialist advice on managing your money and dealing with your debts.

Our main offices are located in Oswestry, Ludlow and Shrewsbury and we also run 9 outreach projects: 5 in local GP surgeries, 3 in local community centres and provide debt advice at HM Prison Stoke Heath.

Our service is operated by 33 paid staff and over 70 volunteers and we are very grateful for all their commitment and hard work in helping us to achieve our charitable goals. We couldn’t do it without you.

We’re an independent charity and part of the national Citizens Advice network.
