South Bristol Advice Services


South Bristol Advice Services are a value based organisation with the needs of our clients and local community at the heart of all that we do. We are committed to delivering a range of high quality services that responds to those needs with innovation and flair.

Our mission is to combat poverty by the promotion of empowerment through the provision of free, confidential, accurate and timely advice, information and advocacy to the South Bristol Community.

We will challenge discrimination and injustice and promote access to services for all sections of the community.

We will provide services that support and strengthen the health and wellbeing of the community we service in a respectful, dignified and welcoming manner.

We deliver advice sessions wherever the need is greatest, including outreach services in some of the most deprived wards in South Bristol. In certain cases we represent clients at appeal tribunals. A high proportion of our work is around physical and mental health related benefits.

We work towards bringing the community together through empowering people by informing them of their rights and obligations. We strive to improve both the future prospects and development of our clients by the provision of timely and accurate advice.

We are focused on building a stronger community by encouraging inclusion, connection and integration. We place an emphasis on self-help where appropriate and practicable.
