Information and advice
Advice and Advocacy Service
Age UK Colchester’s comprehensive Advice and Advocacy Service is staffed by experienced, caring advisors. The service is free of charge, independent and completely confidential.
Energy costs play a major part in an older person’s budget and so it is important that you are able to get the best deal for your gas and electricity.
We can offer up to 30 minutes of free legal advice provided by an independent firm of solicitors between 11.00am and 1.00pm on alternate Wednesdays.
Council Tax Reduction Advice
Most older people find Council Tax a considerable financial burden and either don’t know there are ways to reduce it, or are reluctant to try. If you are a lone occupant you are entitled to a 25% discount.
