Smart advice for young people

What we do

Sometimes it’s hard to find help, right? Perhaps you need advice about housing, money, benefits or immigration? We’re the right people for you! Friendly, ready to listen and help you out.

Who we are

Ask Us is a partnership between 1625ip, Avon Bristol Law Centre and Citizens Advice, helping you access local services, understand your rights and work towards independence. 
We also consult with young people to make sure you are properly represented!

How we work

We can help you to sort out the immediate problems and then work with you to build coping strategies and a plan so you can avoid crisis situations in the future.
