Citizens Advice wins Charity of the Year 2015
In October 2015 Citizens Advice was named Charity of the Year in the Charity Times Awards.
Chief Executive Gillian Guy said:
“It was a privilege to be able to accept the award on behalf of everyone in our service. This includes over 21,000 volunteers, our advisers and our supervisors, our team at Citizens Advice, our local trustees and managers, and those hundreds of organisations we work with locally and nationally.
I also would particularly like to highlight the exceptional work of our Impact Team, whose analysis calculating the outcomes we provide, for our clients and to society, was singled out for praise by the judges.
Together we genuinely change our clients' lives for the better. That is an incredible and invaluable thing, and it was this team effort that is recognised by this award.”
In the last year we have helped 2.5 million people with 6.2 million problems and we aim to continue this service into 2016.
