This paper, by Matthew Smerdon and Joe Randall, sets out the background to the current STVS programme. The Foundation believes social welfare legal advice plays a vital role in tackling disadvantage and discrimination. The advice sector has been under pressure for some time, and this has increased significantly as a result of public funding cuts and the rise in demand for advice services. The Future Advice programme is seeking to support work across a series of themes, from attracting new forms of income to making more use of strategic litigation. The report sets out the thinking and lists all the grants given so far.
