Campaigns

Citizens Advice collects evidence of the problems people seek advice on and uses this to campaign for changes in policies and services. We regularly publish evidence reports, responses to consultations and parliamentary briefings on a huge range of issues.

You’ll find information about our current campaigns on this page.

If you know of an issue where you think Citizens Advice Hambleton, Richmondshire and Selby & District should be taking action, or if you’re interested in volunteering to assist with our research and campaigns work, please get in touch. Contact details can be found on the Get advice and contact page.

We are independent and impartial so policymakers listen to us.
