How can your problems help other people?

All Citizens Advice Bureaux collect evidence of their clients' problems, and we use this to work with local organisations to bring about changes needed in policies and services.

If your problem might be shared by other people across the country we tell the national Citizens Advice centre, without ever revealing the names of individual clients.
