Advicelocal: A UK-wide postcode tool for finding advice
Advicelocal is a new postcode tool that can help with questions relating to seven areas of law - welfare benefits and tax credits; council tax; debt and money advice; housing and homelessness; employment and work issues; disability and social care; and asylum and immigration. Enter a postcode and choose an advice topic to find tailored information for a particular area, including key local authority resources and details of local independent advice organisations.
Advicelocal for organisations:
Advicelocal was developed in consultation with frontline advice organisations across the UK, and Lasa hope that those of you who are ‘problem noticers’ and ‘sign-posters’ - for example those working in education or health settings - will also find the site valuable in supporting people you’re in contact with.
Add advicelocal search to your website:
If you have a website, Lasa have a widget (see below) that you can use if you’d like to add advicelocal search to your site. Or why not generate a link to an advice directory map for your local area? Find out more from their For organisations page.
