About Citizens Advice Barking & Dagenham (CABD)
Citizens Advice Barking & Dagenham ‘CABD’:
Working in the most deprived Borough in London; every year we support thousands of people in need. Upstream our advice access team supports residents to manage their money, understand their housing or employment rights and navigate social security rules. Downstream, our specialist team focuses on casework and litigation to resolve multiple debts, homelessness, court evictions, employment claims, mandatory reconsiderations and appeals.
Welfare to work, austerity and legal aid cuts mean that local demand for our services and particularly specialist legal casework is high. The pandemic and Cost of Living Crisis is making things much harder for the people.
Our Research and Campaigns team routinely collects evidence to give people a voice and a chance to make things better.
CABD is a Centre of Legal Excellence and a Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year award finalist in 2018 and 2021. We employ a principal solicitor and experienced lawyers. Our first trainee solicitor qualifies this year. Our culture is inclusive and supportive, and our workforce is collectively committed to using the law to tackle poverty, discrimination & inequality.
