It's impossible to overstate the difference rightsnet has made to my work and how it has impacted on my clients | I would not be nearly so good at what I do if it had not been for rightsnet | By far the fastest ... most user friendly way to keep right up to date | Essential to the job, I can't imagine being without it

NEW: Coronavirus (COVID-19): We’ve been thinking of ways that we can do more to help during the Coronavirus / COVID-19 situation. This is what we've come up with so far: (i) we've created a new social welfare law update page that's being reviewed and updated daily; (ii) we've launched a new online casework support forum to help advisers to respond to enquiries and to share their experience and expertise; (iii) we've opened up access to our coronavirus-related news stories in order that they might now also be accessed by those of you without a rightsnet subscription; and (iv) we've launched a second new forum The Social that we hope might play a part in helping us all to steer a course through the next few weeks and months by providing more of a social, less work-focused space to catch up with like-minded members of the rightsnet/access to justice community. Please do share with colleagues or others that don’t already have access. Ps: if you or someone you know is looking for advice, do use our Find an adviser service to find help in your area.
