Many people think they will never need their Citizens Advice service. This is before they…
- lose their job
- find themselves getting deeper into debt
- have problems with their landlord
- buy faulty goods
- become separated or divorced
- need to claim benefits
- start looking after elderly or disabled relatives
Citizens Advice Milton Keynes is a registered local charity which receives very limited funding from the government. This means we are very reliant on other sources of funding to maintain essential services.
You can help us to continue our work
Most of the money that we receive goes towards delivering support services in and around the Milton Keynes area. We appreciate every single donation we receive, and ensure that every pound you donate is well utilised.
We are only able to offer our life-changing services because of the generous donations we receive from supporters.
You can help in lots of ways:
Make a donation: a donation will help us to provide services to people who turn to us for help.
Charity of the year: if you are a business and would like to support us as your ‘charity of the year’ or in some other way, please use the email link at the bottom of the page to get in touch.
Set up a Direct Debit: a regular donation is even more valuable, and helps us to plan our work.
Make a bequest in your will: a bequest is one of the greatest gifts we can receive, allowing us to plan for a sustainable future for the people of Milton Keynes.
Give through your payroll at work: you can also support us through automatic donations from your salary, if your employer operates a scheme. You make your donation to us straight from your gross salary (before tax is deducted) and receive immediate tax relief. Some companies offer a matching funds scheme too.

If you’d like to find out more about how you can help, please email us.
Remember, if you’re a tax payer, for every £1 that you donate to our charity we are able to claim back 25p through Gift Aid which helps us to maximise our fundraising.
£5 would mean we can do an initial assessment for somebody calling our local helpline
£10 would pay for specialist debt advice and help someone break free from debt
£20 would pay for the recruitment and training of a new volunteer adviser
