New partnership proves we are stronger together
Citizens Advice has proudly served the people of Greater Manchester for more than 75 years – and as the city region embarks on one of the most exciting periods in its history, we have been making sure we are ready to work with the new regional authority to support those living in its communities long into the future.
Citizens Advice Greater Manchester will continue to focus on delivering the best possible outcomes to support the policies and campaigns that will turn our city region into one of the best in the world. Our work will continue to help people in Greater Manchester live independent lives by providing advice on areas such as debt, housing, health and social care, crime and anti-social behaviour and employment.
By addressing these challenges and giving people access to the right support and information, we can create stronger and better connected communities, reduce demand on public services across the region, and bring money to the local economy in the form of welfare and external funding for our services. The Citizens Advice Greater Manchester group has been born from a partnership agreement between the local Citizens Advice services working in communities across the 10 Greater Manchester boroughs.
By working collaboratively, our teams will pool resources and expertise to tackle the region’s biggest challenges, while our local networks and community infrastructure means that we are ideally placed to deliver services directly to all residents who need them in the way that suits them. Citizens Advice Greater Manchester stands ready to work with our partners across the city region to deliver services and results that will make the biggest impact, while also achieving the financial efficiency that devolution promises to bring."
