Campaigning for change
As well as providing advice, every local Citizens Advice office has a twin aim of collecting evidence from clients’ experiences – and our experiences of advising them – and using this to campaign for positive changes that can benefit everybody, and not just people who access the service. We do this work locally, with Councillors, Members of Parliament and local organisations. We also provide case studies and information to Citizens Advice’s Head Office, for use in their national campaigning work.
We also run awareness raising and media campaigns, and publicise our success stories.
