We can all face problems that seem difficult, complicated, challenging or intimidating. At the Kongolese Centre for Information & Advice, we believe no one should have to face these problems without good quality, independent advice.

People rely on us because we’re independent and totally impartial. All of our advice and guidance is provided with strict confidentiality.

These services are free to people who are eligible and at competitive rate for others. Find out more about our work here.

“Very practical, cheerful and helpful which was just what I needed.”

“Thank you very much for the best way you have chosen to be of great help to myself and my family on the issue”
