Roundtable on London's Advice Services for Young People
You are invited to a roundatble for front-line advice agencies in London working with young people / wishing to develop their work with young people. Agencies will be a mix of Citizens Advice, youth advice agencies which are part of Youth Access, and Law Centres.
In the morning session, we will identify what works when advising young people and how to expand and improve the current offer as well as attract funding to do this sustainably.
The afternoon session (attended by a delegation from the morning session) will be a focus group to inform the 'Advising Londoners' review conducted by the Advice Services Alliance on behalf of the GLA.
Places are very limited, so please register quickly if you're interested.
