Further to the advice and assistance I have provided, I am writing with a summary of joint discovery.
Since 2005 I have been working in the legal advice sector providing advice in debt,housing and welfare benefits law.
I have had the privilege in dealing in the truth of society and found that what the media keep telling us is an opinion that assists in striping society of its strength and empowerment.
Over the past 7 years I have had the honor of being let into the lives of over 1400 people. Most of whom I have found are just scared of taking steps to improve their lives due to the unnecessary complexity that our society has created.
With my main role being to explain and unpick these complexities I began to find a cycle of dependancy within our culture. In essence the free advice sector has become a filter for the public and private sectors, who prefer to not believe the individual without the backing of an impartial sponsor.
I entered into this work to enable and empower the most vulnerable people in society. However, it seem that these people are being left at the end of the queue as the more capable are now accessing advice services purely on the direction of an authority that needs an impartial sponsor.
In the beginning I valued the outcomes that where achieved for individuals, but found the bigger picture was that of a overworked sector that had limited influence and resource in changing an individuals view on their ablities to self empower. Instead funding for the sector forces agencies to meet criteria,fix the problem not the person,and if there is time, deal with the policy that causes the issue.
