The combination of austerity, significant cuts to legal aid, and confusion as to how to navigate the complex service landscape in the UK compounded by Covid, has also compounded the situation. Agencies report people struggling and falling even deeper into poverty. Looking to the evidence base that exists elsewhere we can learn to look at what might be improved and set up the opportunities, look at new models of practice and build on existing models of multidisciplinary practice. I seek to open a long overdue dialogue between the charity sector, civil society, funders, decision makers, government and our parliamentary representatives so that we can improve the outcomes for those who currently are so often left behind, are overwhelmed and have no voice.
