Hackney Advice Forum – Network
The Hackney Advice Forum aims to help independent advice agencies in the borough improve the quality, level and co-ordination of their services and activities by providing a network and mechanism for advice agencies and those involved in advice work, to share and learn and develop effective ways of working together; helping the sector to obtain the resources it needs (money, training, information, etc.) to get the best possible outcomes for users and communities; and providing a voice for the independent advice sector locally.
