About Citizens Advice
Citizens Advice is made up of 316 charities from all over the United Kingdom that give free, confidential, information and advice to those that need it. They can assist people with the likes of money, legal problems and also give relationship advice. One of their main aims is to improve the principals and policies that affect people’s lives on a day to day basis. Citizens Advice organisations began to emerge in the 1930’s and were cut during the war, but then re-emerged in the 1960’s. In 2013 it was announced that over 1/3 of the UK’s population had visited the Citizens Advice website. In 2016, Citizens Advice has been focussing on cuts made by the recent Conservative Government and dealing with issues stemming from the Personal Independence Payment and the bedroom tax.
