Research and Campaigns

Citizens Advice campaigns on local and national issues which affect our clients.

Past campaigns have looked at the cost of school uniforms, access to basic bank accounts and the problems with renting property in the private sector. A new Research and Campaigns project is in the planning stage and this will be looking at access to local mental health services and support. Below is information on one of our previous campaigns, rental in the private sector.


Scams Awareness Campaign 2019

Scams Awareness Campaign 2019 takes place over 2 weeks in June. It’s an opportunity for organisations nationally and locally to give people the skills and confidence to identify scams, share their experiences and take action by reporting suspicious activity.

People can:

●    Stop and get advice from the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline at 03454 04 05 06 (or 03454 04 05 05 for Welsh language).

●    Report scams to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or @actionfrauduk on Twitter.

●    Talk with friends, family and neighbours about scams they’ve seen.
