About Bradford & Airedale Advice

Welcome to the Bradford & Airedale Advice partnership


Bradford & Airedale Advice (BAA) is a partnership of advice agencies contracted by Bradford Metropolitan District Council to deliver advice across the Bradford District. We give free, independent, confidential, impartial and quality assured advice direct to local people about social welfare legal rights. We help people with problems about debt, benefits, tax credits, Universal Credit, disability allowances, housing, homelessness, employment rights, fuel, immigration, nationality, consumer, community care, health, family and related issues.

We help you resolve your problems. We explain your options and the possible outcomes of different courses of action. We don’t tell you what to do – we encourage you to make your own decisions and to act for yourself. But we may also take action on your behalf if you cannot act for yourself and there is no one else (eg family, friend, support worker) who can help you.

All members of Bradford & Airedale Advice have been awarded the national Advice Quality Standard (AQS) or the Specialist Quality Mark (SQM). This means they have been assessed by independent auditors and meet national standards for giving good quality advice.
