Welcome to Focus
The most significant event has to be our 80th anniversary on 4 September. Read more about our history from our origin as an emergency front-line wartime service to the modern and comprehensive advice service we are today! As the article shows we have continuously evolved over the years to meet the ever shifting social welfare landscape and changes in benefits and social legislation.
Our recent strategy and development day also featured below was held to ensure that we continue to provide an effective quality service for clients, are anticipating future need and that we value, develop and support our people.
In July I was pleased to speak at the @DebtFreeLDN conference where I encouraged our partners to make online referrals when they are working with vulnerable clients.
Our Research and Campaigns team (Alistair pictured) have also been busy working on projects to monitor the difficulties Universal Clients are facing and responding to Westminster City Council’s draft Homelessness Strategy 2019-24 (see our response here).
