Campaign for change

Citizens Advice Rochford & Rayleigh collects evidence of client’s problems and uses this, anonymously, to campaign for changes in policies and services both locally and nationally. We regularly work with local MPs, local press, councils and other bureaux.

We speak up about the policies and services that cause people problems

We act to raise the issues with those who are causing them and suggest how they could be avoided.

As well as giving a voice to our clients, our research ensures new policies are based on evidence rather than assumptions, benefitting many more people than we could ever advise one to one.

Are you self-employed or looking to become self-employed?

You may find our presentation, summarising the key issues, for the self-employed and how Citizens Advice can help useful. This presentation was put together following two self-employed events that we ran in April 2016 funded by the Citizens Advice campaign in a box initiative, which were attended by those who are self-employed and key local decision-makers.
