Liverpool Access to Advice Network (LATAN) are holding an in-person national conference in late November.
The combined effects of austerity, welfare reform, Covid-19, spiralling costs, and the housing crisis have created a historic peak in the scale, complexity and urgency of advice needs. With ever increasing demand and a widening demographic, the challenge for people to access advice is greater than ever. Delays accessing advice are also having serious repercussions for the health of families across the country.
These unprecedented times need a new vision for the advice sector. This calls for fresh thinking, collaboration and sharing ideas. We must also join up the dots between free legal advice and reducing health inequalities and poverty.
This in-person national conference organised by Liverpool Access to Advice Network, in partnership with the University of Liverpool, School of Law and Social Justice is responding to these challenges. Following a keynote speech by Professor Sir Michael Marmot, the conference will focus on innovation and collaboration in and with the advice sector and the connection between free legal advice and health inequality.
The Liverpool Access to Advice Network is made up of advice organisations in Liverpool with the aim of creating a thriving community of practice and referral system in the face of a high demand for social welfare advice and cuts to services across the city. They are inviting anyone with an interest in social welfare to join them for this annual event.
