The National Association of Welfare Rights Advisers (NAWRA) is a membership organisation for advisers and organisations across the UK.

NAWRA aims to challenge, influence and improve welfare rights policy and legislation by building a national network of advisers who share ideas and good practice.

What are the benefits of membership?

  • A free place at each of our quarterly conferences at venues around the UK for every adviser at your organisation. Each event includes a programme of presentations, guest speakers, information exchange and participatory group workshops where you can share examples of best practice and get practical hints and tips in the ever-changing world of benefits advice. And if you can’t attend, you can always find minutes, presentations and workshop materials on our website.
  • Regular email newsletters with useful information, reports, news, advice sector jobs and much more.
  • As the representative body for advisers, NAWRA makes the case for advice services across the UK through our research and development activities.
  • You can contribute to NAWRA’s policy and lobbying work. We strive to represent your views in national stakeholder groups, respond to government consultations and help develop campaigns.
  • Access to the members area of our website. There’s a range of useful content including shared resources, our famous benefit changes updater chart, our consultation responses, our newsletter, useful research, news and opinion.
