Citizens Advice Hampshire is a consortium of independent Citizens Advice Bureaux. We are a charity working together to improve advice services for the people of Hampshire.
Here at Citizens Advice Hampshire we are committed to making Hampshire and the Isle of Wight a fairer place to live and work. Although our small team does not deliver front line services we work in partnership with Bureaux and Partners across the county and three unitary authorities. We are formed as a consortium by a number of Bureaux. These are listed on our about us page.

Impacts of Public Sector austerity on clients of Hampshire Local Citizens Advice
We have put together some information to show the impact of Public Sector Austerity on our clients.
The last 2 quarters of 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 tell us how many unique clients sought our help and the number of issues they had.
Referrals to Food Banks over the same period have also seen an increase.
