Membership Types

AdviceUK’s purpose and vision is to create a society wherein every individual, regardless of means, is able to access the advice they need in order to exercise their rights and deal with any legal and social welfare problems they may face.

We are primarily known for supporting independent advice agencies and services that give social welfare advice directly, working in a wide range of diverse communities. These organisations typically hold Network Membership. However, we also offer other types of membership and these are also listed below.

Network Membership

Network Membership is for individual organisations. We aim to work both with and for our Network Members to the full extent that our resources will allow; for example through:

  • Advice centric information and updates
  • Regular networking and sharing of sector knowledge online and at events
  • Support services – with Croner business support and money advice support
  • Influencing and Engagement work with Government

Group Network Membership

In limited circumstances, we can offer Group Membership to networks or consortia of advice-giving organisations. Please contact membership for more details.


We offer Associate Membership to organisations that we are proud to associate with and who, while not giving social welfare advice directly, , have objectives and values that are consistent with or complementary to our own. An annual Associate fee is payable. Associate Members have access to selected member benefits.

Please contact membership if you are interested in becoming an Associate Member.

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.
