BOLD is a revolution in thinking about what advice is for and what it can do. Using the Vanguard Method for Systems Thinking, we help advice services become more effective, building their capacity and independence to ‘do better things’ for the people they serve.
The Access to Justice Foundation Project supports collaboration and partnerships between community advice services and pro-bono advice schemes involving solicitors and barristers.
RADICAL marked the start of our alternative approach to the design, coordination and integration of advice and legal services. It initially involved a study in Powys and Oxford in conjunction with Vanguard Consulting, and led to the publication of the report It’s the System Stupid! Radically Rethinking Advice in October 2008.
Developing Access to Advice and Policy (DAAP) is a partnership with the Law Centres Federation to build the capacity and skills of member organisations. Funded by the London Councils, it aims to improve performance, organisational capacity, and the quality and sustainability of front-line advice organisations across London.
Governance developed jointly with the Law Centres Federation, this project aims to improve the skills and knowledge of trustees and not-for-profit company directors, and to help them function well in a regulatory, policy and funding environment that is increasingly challenging.
Working Together for Advice was a multi-stream Big Lottery funded project across several of the advice networks.
