As well as providing advice and support, Citizens Advice Knowsley is extremely active in campaigning about the issues affecting Knowsley.Through our research and campaigns, we can lobby for changes in policies which benefit local residents as a whole. If we see a lot of people visiting Citizens Advice Knowsley for advice on a similar issue, then we’ll launch a research project to see if we can implement changes in local policies so that these problems don’t keep occurring.

You can read and watch videos about the campaigns we’re currently working on below.
