Policy and Campaigns
In order to campaign and get changes made to the policies and practices that affect local residents, Citizens Advice Westminster first gathers the evidence from our interactions with our clients to try to identify exactly how widespread problems are. This research is analysed to look at where trends or patterns are emerging. We try and assess how local people are being affected and what exactly needs to be done to address the problem.
Citizens Advice Westminster works with other local advice agencies, as members of the Westminster Advice Forum, to pool this anonymous data and achieve a borough-wide picture. We then work in partnership with local government and other local decision-makers to campaign for effective change.
On a national level, we work with other Citizens Advice services across the network to campaign on national issues.
