Other London work
AdviceUK runs a forum in London open to any organisation that has a franchise or contract from the Legal Services Commission. The forum provides participants with updates on contract issues, undertakes policy work and provides other resources and support.
Our policy work
The London Manager undertakes policy work in support of members’ interests and the cause of independent advice. This has included lobbying major policy makers and funders to promote funding policies that recognise our members’ needs and circumstances. We also engage with statutory bodies such as the Legal Services Commission to ensure that the priorities of the Community Legal Service coincide with those of our members. We consult our members directly so that what we say is supported by evidence and represents the diversity of the sector. For more information about current policy work please contact us on 03007770107
