Working with others, CIfA is an effective voice in advocacy for the sector. As one mechanism, CIfA responds to consultations issued by government departments, national and other organisations, on legislation, policy, guidance and implementation, though not normally on specific cases. CIfA’s responses are drafted with advice and input from Advisory Council, committees, groups and individual members.

It is helpful to receive members' views in order to inform our responses. If you wish to contribute to a CIfA consultation response please email Rob Lennox at rob.lennox [at]
