Citizens Advice Southwark at Parliament Select Committee hearing

Following a national campaign to try and halt the roll-out of Universal Credit, Citizens Advice Southwark was invited to present evidence in support of our campaign to a parliamentary committee. We were represented at the meeting by our Advice Services Manager, Nicola Smith, who answered questions from the committee members and detailed our clients’ experiences.
