Our Citizens Advice Bureaux are accredited by the Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers.
North Ayrshire Citizens Advice Service has achieved accreditation from the Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers.
We are the first advice service to have received accreditation in North Ayrshire, and up to such a high level, for the advice and information services that we provide.
The accreditation standards were developed by the Scottish Government to ensure that advice services throughout Scotland are being delivered to an acceptable and consistent level.
The assessment process was extremely thorough and examined every aspect of North Ayrshire Citizens Advice Service’s activities which included management, planning, accessibility, customer care and service provision.
What does this mean for you?

The certificate gives you the assurance the advice and information services you receive meet the set standard and are reliable and dependable.
Our advisers are trained to the nationally recognised and respected Adviser Training Programme, and this award recognises their hard work and achievement to deliver a free, professional, independent and confidential service to our customers.
