Citizens Advice

The Advice Guide website is the main public information service of Citizens Advice, providing people with round-the-clock access to CAB information on their rights - including benefits, housing and employment, and on debt, consumer and legal issues. Relevant factsheets include pensions, benefits, disability and age discrimination.



This is a comprehensive website for people over 50, with a section on work and learning.



This website is maintained by TAEN and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), and is very useful for advisers or for others supporting people who are looking to find work or to progress at work. The first link takes you to a page about age discrimination, and the second to a comprehensive resource base including reports, articles and links to websites. It is still possible to link through this site to the excellent but now outdated Advice-Resources Guide.


The National Careers Service

The National Careers Service is free to all adults, via a freephone telephone service 0800 100 900, by email or other web-based activities, or face to face at local offices. The website includes a Skills Health Check, a CV Builder and 750 Job Profiles. The NCS regional teams, and staff from the telephone channel, were partners in the Mid-life Career Review Project and tested a range of models.
