Citizens Advice Contact Number – 03454 04 05 06
If you’re looking to lodge a complaint about your energy supplier or supply, you need to get in touch with Citizens Advice on 03454 04 05 06 for immediate assistance. The Citizens Advice numbers on this page will patch you through to Citizens Advice, although you may be forwarded to a switchboard to help them direct your claim.
What is Citizens Advice?
Citizens Advice was launched in the 90s as a Government funded call centre, helping to provide basic consumer advice to citizens of the United Kingdom.
Originally designed to make basic information available to everybody, regardless of where they live or whether they had Internet access, the Citizens Advice line was a success. Simple complaints were dealt with directly, but more complex issues were forwarded on to the relevant organisation, which typically meant trading standards.
Over the course of its life, Citizens Advice would deal with ever increasing numbers of complaints about energy companies and a large part of its job would be to forward these to Ofgem.
Following the arrival to power of the Conservative and Lib Dem government, cost cutting measures were implemented across all sectors. A review into Government spending found that Citizens Advice was an unnecessary expense, and in March 2012 it ceased to operate, with its role being passed on to charity Citizens Advice.
Do Citizens Advice provide the same services?
If you haven’t called since the Citizens Advice days, you might be worried that the new organisation doesn’t provide the same level of advice that it previously did. Well, you needn’t worry about that, because Citizens Advice have picked up exactly where the former Government service have left off, meaning a complete and robust service for those of us looking for consumer advice.

Citizens Advice do warn, however, that contact through these methods will take up to five working days to get a response. That’s a long time, and unless your issue isn’t pressing, we wouldn’t recommend getting in touch with them.
As always, the very fastest way to have your problem resolved is to speak with Citizens Advice on the phone. Doing so is simple, just pick up your phone and dial 08454 040506. From there, we’ll connect your directly to Citizens Advice.
Citizens Advice postal address:
Letters of complaint can be sent to Citizens Advice (formerly Consumer Direct), but only about energy or post problems.
