About Us

Advice NI, a registered charity founded in 1995, exists to provide leadership and services to our 69 member organisations and to ensure accessible advice services across Northern Ireland.

Our Work

We support our members in their delivery of high quality advice services by:

  • working with them to enhance standards and service delivery;
  • acting as a voice for the independent advice sector;
  • working in partnership to develop and deliver advice services.

Advice NI members, the independent advice network, offer free, independent, high quality advice on issues such as:

  • Benefits
  • Debt
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Disability
  • Community Care
  • Consumer issues
  • EU Settlement Scheme

Advice NI also delivers a range of advice services to the public including Debt and Money, Tax and Benefits, EU Settlement Scheme and Business Debt. We work with older people supporting them to access their rights and entitlements online. We offer a wide range of award winning training, online and face-to-face, accredited and non-accredited. We campaign on issues raised by the independent advice network to improve the lives of people in Northern Ireland.

Our Strategic Plan 2017-2020 sets out the themes, objectives and outcomes of our work.
