Event description

Description

Voluntary sector advice services are facing a crisis. The local voluntary sector advice office is, for many, the only lifeline in dealing with a myriad of everyday problems and crises – from losing a job, mounting debts, threats of eviction or the demands of caring for elderly relatives or sick children. There is an urgent need to radically rethink how services are delivered so that they remain accessible and available to all. This interactive exhibition will explore solutions to the crisis in face-to-face advice funding, informed by stories of advice service users, collected throughout research by the University of Bristol and presented by actors..

Thinking Futures is the University's festival to share and celebrate research in the social sciences. With a wide variety of events for the general public, schools, policy-makers and third sector organisations, it provides an opportunity to see how the social sciences inform key debates and advances in policy and practice for governments, education, charities, health services, legal systems, and public services around the globe. It is part of the national ESRC's Festival of Social Sciences.
