Research and Campaigns
At Citizens Advice Welwyn Hatfield we have two main aims:
• Providing impartial information and confidential advice.
• Collecting evidence for campaigns to improve national and local policies that affect all our lives.
Your local Research and Campaigns team gathers evidence recorded by advisers, anonymises it and may use it to persuade national and local government to change policies and procedures.
We would like to thank our principal funders without whom we would not be able to provide our continuing service to the community.
We would also like to thank the many other individuals and organisations who give us private grants and donations.
