Our Team

Together, Citizens Advice Pennine West and Citizens Advice Stockport (through a collaboration agreement and memorandum of understanding) serve the residents of Stockport, Oldham, Rochdale and Trafford in delivering the quality information, advice and guidance services.

To oversee delivery of this service, there is an Executive Leadership Team who manage the day-to-day running of both charities. Each charity has a trustee board made up of individuals from all walks of life, who oversee the strategic direction of the charities.

Supporting the Executive Leadership Tea, each local office has a core of highly trained social workers, supervisors and solicitors to support our volunteers enabling the best support possible for our clients.
