The Government announced on
Work has now started on the review which will conclude early next year with recommendations to Ministers, and will build on work that has already been done. The review is considering the funding environment for free advice services, likely levels of demand, and how Government can play a positive role.
In conducting the review, the Cabinet Office is seeking the input of a wide range of advice sector stakeholders including national and local advice organisations, representative bodies, umbrella organisations for the sector, and other organisations that play an influential role in determining the landscape of free advice provision. We are doing this through individual stakeholder meetings, roundtable discussions with key sector representatives, and by taking account of recent, relevant research in this area.
