Liverpool Access to Advice Network Conference


Liverpool Access to Advice Network (LATAN) are holding an in-person national conference on Thursday 23rd November 2023.

Taking place in the School of Law and Social Justice Building, Events Space, University of Liverpool.

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 and 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 of the future. 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.

Informal networking will be an important part of the day, giving delegates time to meet, share, and be inspired. With a marketplace at lunch time that will feature some of the local and national organisations based in Liverpool, with opportunities for hearing about innovative delivery through lightning talks, and through discussion based workshops, the conference will focus on sharing, learning, and space to reflect on responses to the challenges facing the advice sector.

This 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 legal advice and health inequality.

School of Law and Social Justice Building, Chatham Street, Liverpool, L69 7ZR.
