Advicehub

Location: CB1 2BL

Advicehub is a partnership initiative which is increasing people's access to advice services across Cambridgeshire.  Advicehub has brought together a partnership of over 40 advice and support services across the county to coordinate activities, share resources and monitor quality of service. As well as bringing together organisations in the advice sector  to create a more streamlined service for clients, it is also using innovative technology to take advice into areas where people really need it.  There are currently nearly 20 self-help touchscreen kiosks at community locations across Cambridgeshire where people can find solutions to common issues at the touch of a button.  See our website for kiosk locations.

We also run an annual programme of training courses to enhance the skills of people working in the advice sector.

Advicehub is led by the four Citizens Advice Bureaux of Cambridgeshire - Cambridge, Ely, Fenland and Huntingdonshire - and is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
