Working in association with Community Money Advice

About Us

The Oaks Money Advice Centre provides a free, confidential, face to face budgeting, debt and benefit advice services based within Blackburn Foodbank, open to anyone under financial strain. We are understanding of how debt and money management can build up and become seemingly unmanageable, and so we provide tools and advice to alleviate this and allow for a path forward. Anyone is free to terminate services at any point without commitments.

We operate Monday – Friday, 9am-3pm.

The Oaks Money Advice Centre also runs Outreach appointments which are available at Care Network, Blackburn and at Albion Mill. Please contact us to find out more about the outreach service.

Appointments are available face-to-face or over telephone call.
