  8. Not for Profit Advice Services in England (Minister for Civil Society) • Cabinet Office- Not for Profit Advice Services in England • “Not for profit organisations (nfp) have provided a trusted and valued source of independent advice for many years.” • “They are a vital part of our national support infrastructure and somewhere to turn to in times of crisis.” • “The current economic climate has led to a reduction in public funding but an increase in demand.”

  9. Supply and Demand • Many providers say that they are working at full capacity and struggling to meet demand. • In many cases clients present complex problems involving a combination of issues. • Debt problems for employed home owners are becoming increasingly visible • Demand extends beyond those actively seeking advice. (1m households sought debt advice, but up to 4.4m households could have a latent demand for debt advice.)

  10. Minister for Civil Society • Must consider how advice services can adapt to the new environment; achieve more through collaboration, early intervention and exploitation of remote channels; and deliver high quality services that are sustainable in an environment of reduced funding. • I understand that it takes time, money and the right skills to transform organisations. • New funding to help nfp providers to redesign services to reflect the new financial realities
