Friends of Wiltshire Citizens Advice

Join our network of Friends 

Wiltshire Citizens Advice, as part of the local community needs to make sure that our services are tuned to local needs and that we account to the community for the way we provide those services.
Our network of local critical friends in business, in community groups and through individuals helps to keep us on our toes. For example, in seeking feedback on proposals to changes to our services.

Community Groups as Friends

We recognise the diversity of the population of Wiltshire. We want to seek the specialist knowledge of representative groups as Friends, to ensure that our services reflect their specific needs. Including, for example; minority ethnic communities, youth or older persons groups. 

Local businesses and other organisations as Friends

A key purpose of the Friends is to build relationships with businesses and corporate organisations in Wiltshire, to help them deliver their own Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. There are many opportunities to achieve this including volunteering specialist expertise in helping to deliver our service; sponsorship and partnerships. For example, an IT company in the north of the county has sponsored the development of our IT infrastructure and  provided skills training for our staff and volunteers.

Individuals as Friends

We recognise the importance of continuing to connect with clients, past volunteers and staff members, and people in our local communities who share our values and support our aims. Their knowledge and experience of Wiltshire Citizens Advice makes them great ambassadors and champions. 


Membership of the network is free of charge and open to any individual, corporate organisation, and community group that supports the overall aims of Wiltshire Citizens Advice.
