Together, AdviceUK members are a vibrant and diverse community of advice services. They are at the heart of everything we do as a team of staff and trustees at AdviceUK.  This is because we know how important it is for our members to exist, whether part of a student union, housing association or large charity – or a small, independent, service providing general advice to their local community or specialist advice.

AdviceUK have been working with the Scottish Government to distribute almost £1 million of funding to partnerships between advice agencies and other local services in Scotland, such as schools, charities, hospitals and mental health services, as part of the government’s new Accessible Advice Fund.

We are really proud to publish our latest annual impact report, describing the work of our Influencing and Engagement team in 2022-23 and shows how our work has helped to improve our members’ ability to support the people who use their services.

AdviceUK is delighted to announce that it has successfully secured three years of funding from London Legal Support Trust to work with London’s minority ethnic and migrant communities, AdviceUK members, and those resourcing them. Together we will co-design Workforce Pathways that understand and improve the experiences of people as they start working or volunteering in the advice sector and progressing their careers.
