Citizens Advice Wokingham

Our Campaigns

At Citizens Advice Wokingham we see thousands of people every year. This gives us a greater understanding of the problems that people experience than any other organisation.

Through our work, we know which policies are working and spot emerging problems early.

At both a national and local level, our research and campaigns work combines these insights with analysis of wider social and economic trends and set out new ideas to improve policy and delivery for all.

Our volunteer Research & Campaigns coordinator is Ros Croy
