In this section of the site you can access the full text of current Citizens Information Board booklets and leaflets, social policy and research reports, training materials and guides for voluntary organisations.

We also publish a range of journals and periodicals. These include Relate (the monthly journal on developments in legislation, rights and entitlements and public services), EU Supplement (a quarterly update on legal developments in the EU), Social Policy Update (a periodical highlighting social policy issues) and Speaking Up for Advocacy (a periodical on advocacy matters, networks and developments).

All publications are available online and in print. They can also be provided in alternative formats, such as braille, large print or on CD, on request.

Contact your local Citizens Information Centre for booklets and leaflets on entitlements. For other publications and alternative formats, contact the Citizens Information Board.

Please note that the information in these publications was current at the time of publication. For up to date information on changes in rates of payment, schemes and services, please visit our information website,
