Our aims & objectives

The National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers (NAWRA) is a membership based organisation for social welfare advice providers across the UK.

Although NAWRA membership is essentially aimed at advice organisations, we introduced this category for those individuals who may be retired, who otherwise wish to remain in the sector or who may be students. This allows these individuals to join at a lower membership rate if they are self-funding.

Our aims and objectives are-

Aims:
To challenge, influence and improve welfare rights policy and legislation;
To promote NAWRA as the national voice of welfare rights advisers.

Objectives:

To build a strong national network of welfare rights advisers from all sectors;
To seek to influence government proposals and existing legislation by utilising the expertise of our members;
To identify and share good practice and to promote anti-discriminatory practice;
To offer mutual support and provide a forum for discussion;
To facilitate learning workshops and distribute information;
To recognise and challenge discriminatory legislation;
To promote welfare rights issues and encourage effective partnership working.
Membership of NAWRA is available to groups or individuals working in the welfare rights field and/or who support our aims and objectives.
