This talk will be devoted to Low-Ionisation Nuclear Emission-line Regions (LINERs), the most numerous family among active galaxies in the local universe. After an introduction on the general properties of these active galaxies from a multi-wavelength perspective, the most recent research in our group will be presented. These concern the study of the presence and impact of outflows. Resolved kinematic information has proven to be crucial for the fully characterization of outflows; the IFU spectroscopic study of the prototype LINER NGC1052 represents a clear case. But imaging techniques can be really useful for the systematic search of outflow candidates. Hence, I will also show our results on narrow-band optical imaging for a sample of 70 nearby LINERs. This approach allows us to classify their ionised gas morphologies and estimate the usefulness of this classification to choose the best candidates for hosting outflows
