Research & Campaigns

Many clients come to Citizens Advice to seek advice in dealing with a problem and often the cause of their problem is an unfair policy, practice or piece of legislation. Statistics from client problems are used by Citizens Advice to campaign for changes in policies and services where improvements are needed – solving problems for people who may never even use our services. We talk to Government, local councils and other policy makers to help them improve the laws and services that affect ordinary people.
