How do we get our money?

Citizens Advice Forest of Dean is a registered charity and we are entirely reliant on donations to provide our services. Each year we need raise over £250,000 to cover staff costs, expenses for volunteers, rent and all the other costs with running our office in Cinderford and clinics throughout the Forest.

On this page we lists those organisations who have been generous in their support as without them we could not run the bureau. They include local councils, utilities, local and national companies, charitable funds and others. We also get donations from individuals and from some of our clients. Some contributions are large and others small and some provide donations in kind but all are most welcome and we sincerely appreciate their support.

A big thank you to you all!
