North Bristol Advice Centre

Background

North Bristol Advice Centre's aim is to promote social justice and combat poverty by providing free and independent advice and support that enables people to develop skills, improve wellbeing and make positive changes in their lives and communities.

Established in 1984, NBAC’s main office is in Lockleaze but has essential outreach services across some of the most deprived wards in North Bristol and South Gloucestershire. We run welfare benefits and debt sessions from GP surgeries, Local Authority Centres and community venues. We became members of The National Federation of Independent Advice Centres and active participants in a locally established network of advice centres. In 1997 we became a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.

The core values underpinning our mission include a belief that providing advice, information, support and advocacy will help empower individuals to secure their rights and gain access to the services and entitlements that are available to them. Promoting equal opportunities and challenging discrimination are essential in achieving our mission.  Achieving high professional standards and providing a supportive work environment for staff and volunteers are key factors in delivering an effective service.
