Campaigning for changes in policies and services
Every client that contacts us with a problem provides us with a first-hand experience of policies or practices going wrong. This adds up to a huge wealth of information about the problems people experience.
We use client's stories anonymously to campaign for improvements to these policies and practices by raising issues at all levels. We contribute to public debate and suggest where improvements can be made to the policies and services of government and business.
We aim to stop problems at their source.
Local /regional campaigning
With local or regional issues we may act individually or join forces with other bureau and outside agencies, using client evidence to lobby Members of Parliament (MP's), Assembly Members (AM's) Councillor and local authorities as well as presenting findings to the media.
A good example of this is us co-ordinating the data from all Greater Manchester CAB to submit to the Greater Manchester Poverty Commission.
