Our Campaigns

One of the aims of the Citizens Advice Service is 'to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives' and this is what is known as 'research and campaigns work'. The stories our clients tell us provide a unique insight into the problems faced by people in the UK. We speak up about the policies and services that cause people problems.

By speaking-up for clients, raising real issues, contributing to public debate and influencing public and private sector organisations we aim to challenge and ultimately change unfair operations, rules and legislation.

Please browse our Campaigns; if you feel  an organisation or a system is not working well,  please let us know. Citizens Advice has had lots of success influencing policy and improving systems.For example, our evidence improved the bailliffs code of guidance, has influenced the prepayment options for fuel. If becoming involved in shaping local and national policy interests you, why not consider Volunteering.
