The Citizens Information Board is the statutory body which supports the provision of information, advice and advocacy on a broad range of public and social services. It provides the Citizens Information website, www.citizensinformation.ie, and supports the voluntary network of Citizens Information Centres and the Citizens Information Phone Service 0761 07 4000. It also funds and supports the Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS) 0761 07 2000 and the National Advocacy Service for People with Disabilities. The Citizens Information Board provides the dedicated Mortgage Arrears Information Helpline 0761 07 4050.
Citizensinformation.ieprovides comprehensive information on public services and on the entitlements of citizens in Ireland. We gather information from various government departments and agencies, and make sure that you have all the information you need, presented in an easy-to-understand way.
The site has been specially designed around the needs of users for those times in life when you need information about your rights and how to apply for State services in Ireland.
Citizensinformation.ie was developed, and is maintained by the Citizens Information Board(formerly Comhairle) to replace the Oasis website. Citizensinformation.ie website is an Irish eGovernment initiative, and was originally established under the Government's first action plan for the Information Society. The Citizens Information Board also provides a website aimed at people who are unemployed or facing a reduced hours situation at work. This site is called losingyourjob.ie. We have also developed a website on mortgage and rent arrears in conjunction with the Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS) called keepingyourhome.ie and a microsite aimed at self-employed people whose incomes are reduced called selfemployedsupports.ie.
The Citizens Information Board also runs a website that provides information on assistive technology, aids and appliances for people with disabilities and older people. This website is called assistireland.ie.
