RCJ Advice are proud to deliver a highly effective Citizens Advice service for Islington residents.

Citizens Advice Islington has its own dedicated team of paid staff and volunteers and is based at 222 Upper Street in Islington. We also deliver advice at a range of outreach locations across the borough. This is via appointments which are booked by our partner, Help on Your Doorstep.

All our advice is free, confidential, independent, and available to all Islington residents through appointments booked over the telephone.

If you are an Islington resident please call our Adviceline on 0300 330 1197 in the first instance. Calls are charged at the local rate.

Lines are open from Monday – Friday 10am to 4pm.

Our trained volunteers and specialist caseworkers can advise you on a wide range of issues, such as:

  • Benefits checks, applications and appeals

  • Debt problems, debt relief orders and bankruptcy applications

  • Housing problems, including tenancy issues and repairs

  • Employment problems, such as redundancy, unfair dismissal and discrimination

  • Utilities problems – issues with suppliers of gas, electric and water

  • Consumer problems, for example, faulty goods and complaints.
