The Covid-19 pandemic has increased our awareness of the need for the Law Centre to be rooted in the community we serve, in order that we can be certain that we are reaching all those who need our assistance and to be sure that our services meet the needs of our community.
We are trying to improve understanding of community need for free and low-cost legal advice in Surrey and Kingston. We want to know what more we could be doing to support the community and build a network of the people we serve.
On Monday 9 May 2022, we are launching a Community Consultation, in the form of a survey for residents of Surrey and Kingston, and those who currently work in legal advice provision. Your insights and contributions will help us create a network of the existing services and respond to current community need.
The survey will take 3-5 minutes to complete, and can be accessed here. It will be accessible until 31 July 2022. Please share it with your networks, to help us reach more people.
Eve Rogers, our Community Engagement Manager for Surrey and Kingston, said, “We are excited by the opportunity to learn from our neighbours and colleagues across Surrey and Kingston. Law Centres occupy an exciting position in the struggle for social justice, providing legal representation and advice for those in need, and working collaboratively on campaigns to achieve real social change locally and beyond.
“With insights from those living and working in Surrey and Kingston, we’ll be able to map out the different projects already fighting to improve access to justice, and continue to build a network of the people we serve.”
If you have any questions, or would like the survey posted to you, translated or in a more accessible format, please contact Eve at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 020 8208 5735.
