Citizens Advice now has responsibility for consumer advocacy, education and empowerment. It’s building on its traditional consumer work to ensure that consumer issues are fully represented to Government and policy-makers. Working with their partners in Trading Standards around the country, local Consumer Empowerment Partnerships are working at local and regional level to promote awareness of consumer rights and to offer advice and education through a network of CABs, Trading Standards and other agencies.
If you have a consumer problem now, please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506.
In the East of England, Consumerhub has joined up with lots of different advice agencies , sharing information, news and resources to ensure that residents are better informed about scams, money and consumer rights.
We offer advice and advocacy to vulnerable people, and provide consumer education to community groups.
