About us

Advice in Southampton is a partnership of high-quality accredited advice, information and guidance services for our City’s residents.

AQS (Advice Quality Standard) Logo

We work together to provide a seamless service between generalist and specialist advice services, so the people who need our help don’t have to repeat their story to get the support they need.

All our services provide free, confidential and impartial advice.

We’re funded by Southampton City Council and the Community Justice Fund.

Reporting Hate Crime

Hate Crime Reporting Centre logo

Being you is not a crime.

Targeting you for who you are is.

Hate crime comes in many forms.

If you’ve been attacked, whether verbally or physically, we’re here to help.

You can remain anonymous if you wish, and you don’t have to have contact with the Police.
