Research and Campaigns
As well as helping to people to deal with the problems they face in their daily lives, Citizens Advice also campaigns to improve the policies and practices that cause some of those problems. Here in South Somerset we have a small team of volunteers who help coordinate the information we provide to support national campaigns, but they also look at where we might be able to influence change at a local level.
We regularly Share posts on our social media sites (Facebook and Twitter) to raise awareness of issues that might affect our clients or the wider public, but might also:
- Raise issues with the appropriate MP, Councillor or organisation
- Highlight problems in local media.
