Join the rightsnet community ... thousands of advisers across the UK use the rightsnet discussion forum to get casework support, to share their experience and expertise, and to network with other advice workers ...

'Engaging in 'debates' on the forums has improved my confidence and my ability to research material. I take on cases of increasing difficulty and the outcomes are often very positive. I have saved people from eviction, and clients' improved financial situation has led to improvements in their health ... I would not be nearly so good at what I do if it had not been for rightsnet.'
