Citizenship policy research

Citizens Advice regularly publishes policy research on issues affecting clients of our service. We use this evidence to campaign for changes in policies and services.

Many of the discrimination problems dealt with by local Citizens Advice are work related. We also cover equality issues in areas such as welfare, housing and consumer.

Changes in immigration and asylum legislation have caused difficulties for our clients as well.

Citizens Advice also regularly responds to consultations on citizenship issues using examples of CAB clients' problems.
