Innercity campers were involved in building a mobile advice clinic for Citizens Advice Manchester. We renovated the space to create a private office area as well as an ipad suite.
The van was complemented by a full Victron off grid electrical system , Dometic fridge, diesel heater , cctv , internet and a panic alarm .
This van now drives around Manchester providing free advice to the communities .
We work with some community centres to offer video advice sessions every week.
With video advice you can:
Have a private conversation with one of our trained advisors
Create a plan, to tackle your concerns
Be referred to an expert in-house team or a partner organisation
Get help with employment problems, debts, benefits, immigration and housing
