Who We Are:
We address a fundamental need of people...
"One of the basic needs of all those people feeling disadvantaged, vulnerable or afraid of change is the need for information and advice provided in a clear, concrete, comprehensive manner, free of charge and by a reliable agent that is not attached to the main source of change (be it government, political party or more informal influential group) and distant from the power holding body."
Our aims are:
To promote throughout the world the provision, by independent non-government bodies, of free impartial and confidentual advice and information to the public about their rights;
To represent the interests of its members with all supranational bodies, including the European Union and other international institutions;
Provide a platform and mechanisms for information exchange, co-operation and joint projects among citizens advice associations.
