Current issues

  • Systems Thinking
    AdviceUK has worked with a number of member organisations in Wales to understand and design their services ‘outside-in’, from a customer perspective. This is part of our wider activities pioneering the use of Vanguard Consulting’s Systems Thinking approach, see our systems thinking pages for further details.
  • Welsh Government’s Advice Services Review
    The review has now been published, and along with other members of the Independent Advice Providers’ Forum, we are working with the Welsh Government on proposals arising from recommendations made in the review. You can view the review documents here.
    The Independent Advice Providers’ Forum has produced  a detailed response to the review together with an accompanying report on the expectations that citizens in Wales have when they seek advice. Executive summaries of both the response and the citizen expectations documents are available.
  • Cuts Watch Cymru
    We are working with other members of the Cuts Watch Cymru network to monitor the impact of welfare reform and public spending cuts on people in Wales. Visit the website to see how you can get involved.
  • Fuel poverty
    A number of AdviceUK members are working in this area. You may be interested in the work of NEA Cymru and the Fuel Poverty Action Network.
