Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice, Chichester College and Sussex Legal Services were instrumental in setting up the Chichester Law Clinic six years ago to allow people to continue to have access to justice following cuts in legal aid.
Sussex Legal Services who have been managing the Law Clinic have recently handed over management of the service.
Luca Badioli, CEO at Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice, says “I would like to thank the CEO and Directors of Sussex Legal Services for their drive, commitment and motivation in making sure that the Chichester Law Clinic became a reality and continued to grow and deliver the service currently available. Here at Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice we are passionate about making sure that less fortunate people are able to have access to justice. That is why we will make sure the service is continued.”
Both organisations are immensely grateful to all the volunteers and lawyers who have provided their service over the last six years, as without them, this service would have never been possible.
Anyone wishing to access free legal advice, representation or other similar support must now enquire directly with Citizens Advice.
