Raising the voice of smaller organisations providing advice to London’s diverse communities
We want to raise the voices of smaller organisations providing advice to diverse communities in London!
Advice Services Alliance, former members of the Black and Minority Ethnic Advice Network (BAN) and London Legal Support Trust, with funding by Trust for London are running a short research investigation into the needs of smaller organisations in London providing advice and support to Londoners from diverse communities. ASA’s Advising Londoners research released last year highlighted this as an area for concern and so we have decided to explore the issue further.
This project can have a real impact on the future of the sector. If we can understand in more depth exactly what challenges smaller organisations that work with diverse communities are facing right now, we can work out how to best work together – as organisations, funders, networks, and statutory bodies – to help them to thrive.
Advice Services Alliance are running a group interview next week on March 1st or 2nd with people working in smaller organisations across London. If there is a great deal of interest, we will consider running a second group interview on either day depending on participants’ schedules. We aim to bring people together to discuss their support needs surrounding:
- Managing Demand for Service Provision
- Workforce Development and Training
- Quality Accreditation and Management
- Policy Changes and Your Work
- Networking and Strategic Representation
To register your interest in participating in the group interview, please sign up here. We will be in touch shortly to confirm the details of the interview by February 26th.
We are also running a short survey for the project: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Q7DKGS8
