How we’ve helped others
Here’s what our clients have had to say after receiving advice from us:
I just can’t fault them, they are so helpful, and remain open and welcoming when I come back for advice on different things. It’s a great service. I don’t know where I’d be without it.”
City Advice client
The moment I spoke to an adviser at Toynbee Hall they believed me and didn’t doubt me. One advisor gave me lots of moral support and the other solved all my problems. They took me out of the darkest place in my life”
Free Legal Advice Centre client
Thank you so much for your support. You gave me the chance to learn and to do things myself. You treated me with a lot of respect. When I came to you I felt alone, and was terrified I was going to lose the house. Now I feel I can manage all of the household finances and I don’t feel scared anymore.”
