Where to get advice

Man and lady talking

We all run into problems from time to time

And some are so difficult that we need help with them.

General including debt and legal advice.

The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) [external link] holds a walk-in surgery at the Grange Hall, Coventry Road, Southam, CV47 1QA for residents every Friday. No appointment necessary.

A good point of contact for available social and affordable housing is homechoiceplus [external link].

Abusive relationships

If you are in danger call 999 and speak to the police. 

Adult social care support is available from Warwickshire County County Council [external link].
