Advice Services Alliance

Grant: £22,440
November 26, 2014

The Advice Services Alliance (ASA) and the Low Commission are in the first stage of a wider initiative to better integrate health and advice services, and to explore further potential for advice providers to access health related funding. Whilst the adverse impacts of legal social welfare problems on the health and wellbeing of vulnerable people are widely acknowledged, this is not matched by a corresponding recognition of the health benefits of legal advice. This funding will enable it to research available evidence to demonstrate the health impacts of advice work, to assess the quality of this and identity gaps (particularly in relation to current health policy). It will also map existing projects that deliver advice in health settings to identify types of project, health outcomes, settings and funding sources. The work will lay the basis for a strategy to be developed by an Advisory Group, led by the Low Commission.
