People living across the entire East Midlands county of Derbyshire will now be able to make use of a free legal advice service on housing matters, offered by Chesterfield Law Centre.
Until now the Law Centre was only able to help residents of Chesterfield and the surrounding areas. However, it recently managed to secure funding to continue and indeed extend this important service.
The Law Centre's housing legal advice will now be supported by a new legal aid contract, combined with vital contributions from local authorities to keep help that had been cut from the scope of legal aid in April.
