Research and campaigns
The Research and Campaigns team here at Citizens Advice South Somerset consists of volunteers David Fincham and Dave Osborne. The team is tasked with implementing our input to Research and Campaigns on both local and national issues.
We are fortunate to be able to call upon the services of Citizens Advice’s national office to combine to exert pressure on decision makers and to supply anonymised statistics to justify our findings. However, we may occasionally ask people to engage in surveys (etc) to bolster the evidence we need for a particular Campaign.
Current issues we are engaged with include:
- Research into local transport provision by both road and rail.
- Post Office and Banking closures – gathering information relevant to South Somerset.
- Scams Awareness – highlighting current scams on both social media and this website.

We also use Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness of issues that might affect our clients.
