Who we are
Hounslow Citizens Advice Bureaux Service (HCABxS) are constituted as a company limited by guarantee and are a registered charity. We are governed by our ‘Memorandum and Articles of Association’ and run by our Trustee Board, which maintains and develops our services locally to meet the needs of the local community. We are also a member of our parent organisation, Citizens Advice.
We are made up of three bureaux – Hounslow in the Treaty Centre, Feltham in The Centre and Brentford & Chiswick in Chiswick Town Hall.
We also do outreach work at various locations throughout the borough. We currently have six paid core workers, four project workers and about sixty volunteers, not including the Trustee Board, which has eleven trustees with a variety of backgrounds.
We are managed by a full-time Borough Director and a full-time Borough Services Manager, who together oversee all three bureaux. Each bureau also has one full-time Deputy Manager. In addition, the service has one part-time Administrator attached to the Trustee Board. We currently also have the four project workers.
If you want to know more, please read our latest Annual Report, which gives a very good breakdown of the areas of work covered by each of the bureaux individually and a good picture of our service as a whole.
We hold the Advice Quality Standard (AQS) quality mark, a sign of excellence for organisations that provide advice to the public on social welfare issues.
