Paddock Wood Community Advice Centre is a charity offering free advice, information and support to people living in Paddock Wood and neighbouring villages and towns. We hold the Advice Quality Standard, a national quality mark for organisations providing free, independent advice to members of the public.
Come to us for advice on a wide range of issues including:
debt and money
family (children, domestic abuse, separation)
housing and homelessness
mental health support
We offer face to face advice in our offices at 94 Commercial Road in Paddock Wood, Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 1.30pm. We also offer advice via email and phone/video calls.
Our advisers have appealed successfully at benefit tribunals against the Department of Work and Pensions’ decisions on many occasions. We support any individual who has a benefit need from an initial interview through applications and onwards to challenging awards and often overturning government decisions.
We strongly believe that our community needs to work together to provide a comprehensive advice service for those who live and work in Paddock Wood and surrounding areas. You can find us in the heart of Paddock Wood where we are available to help people living in Paddock Wood and neighbouring villages and towns.
Many problems do not go away, the sooner you ask, the sooner we can help. We aim to ensure that our clients leave our offices feeling empowered and aware of all options available to them.
