  • Release date: 15 May 2013
A review into Not for Profit (NFP) Advice Services was commissioned in light of the unprecedented pressures they are facing given reduction in their funding, alongside the rising demand for advice in the current economic climate.

The scope of the review was limited to primary advice provision by the third and public sectors, taking into account private sector provision and organisations which offer advice as a secondary part of their aims, in order to consider the fuller picture of advice provision in Wales.

The review was comprised of four stages:

  • Stage 1: Literature review a desk-based review of published literature on advices services
  • Stage 2: Mapping exercise covering local authority and NFP advice providers
  • Stage 3: Stakeholder consultation of verbal and written contributions from over 160 sources
  • Stage 4: Final report which considers and presents the information gathered during the review, concluding with recommendations.
