Research and Campaigns
The Research and Campaign team at Citizens Advice Bedford is staffed by volunteers. The objective is to influence policy, both locally and as part of a national Citizens Advice network by submitting evidence based papers on local issues. The benefits of being part of a national network are the influence Citizens Advice is able to leverage on government policy and highlighting the effects of new legislation.
The team have been extremely busy, producing relevant, evidence based reports on issues highlighted by our clients.
Between January 2015- January 2016 the following reports were produced:
- Registering with GP Practitioners
- The State of Bedford
- Health and Wellbeing Report
- Payday Loans
- Universal Credit
- Domestic Violence
- Scams awareness Month
- Relocating the Family & County Court
- Housing Campaign – Disrepair, Letting Agents & Homelessness
