Year End UpdateThis project is now drawing to an end with WNF ceasing in June 2012. Originally set up to be sustainable with funding through the Legal Services Commission (LSC), reductions to LSC funding, particularly for employment and debt, will mean that outreach provision in Bolsover will be reduced from April 2012. Bolsover and Shirebrook outreach will continue but South Normanton and Creswell will close. However, moving into 2012/13 Chesterfield Law Centre is committed to its involvement in the Bolsover Financial Inclusion Forum, facilitated by CVP.

About the project...

This project gives people living in Bolsover district access to Chesterfield Law Centre’s specialist free legal services in social welfare law – employment, housing, housing debt (including prevention of homelessness).The service includes representation at court and tribunal as required.  In addition to taking referrals from other agencies (for example housing services) the project provides daily access via telephone, text phone and internet based access which enables an initial assessment of the issue to be undertaken. In addition, clients with enquiries about their employment, loss of employment, conditions of work and wages can get specialist employment advice via a dedicated telephone service.
