Filing in an Advice Centre

Filing means keeping information (papers, letters, addresses) in a safe place. You file information by arranging it in a certain order, so that you or anyone else can find it quickly.

Filing helps you to decide:

  • Where to put information
  • Into which file to put a paper
  • In which file to look to find a paper
  • Where to find an address

Filing is important because it:

  • Helps you not to lose documents
  • Keeps documents clean and tidy
  • Kelps you to find documents quickly and easily
  • Helps you to be efficient
