Our advice on employment is helping people into work and making them secure in their jobs.
Citizens Advice is helping create a fitter, happier and more productive workforce for Greater Manchester. We provide advice to more than 6,000 people each year across the city region on employment issues. Many of the people we support say circumstances outside of their work life – such as debt and financial constraints, mental health or housing – have a direct impact on their employment. Nearly 1,000 people in the region said debt was impacting on their job.
We offer advice to thousands of people who are put off returning to work because they don’t understand the complex interplay between their earnings and welfare. Almost a quarter of people said they found it easier to get into work after contacting Citizens Advice. We’re also here to make sure people get a fair deal in the workplace, from advice for those setting up their own companies, to support around workers’ rights, health and safety and discrimination.
