Access to Justice - Workshops for indivduals and Service Users

The workshops aim to improve the legal awareness of participants, to give them a basic understanding and to help them to feel more confident about what their rights are and how they can protect them.

We can come to organisations across Tyne and Wear to run these workshops for your service users if you can provide the space and refreshments. If you would like us to provide a venue, we can do so for a small charge.

The workshops each run for 1 hour, or we can run 3 in combination in a half day session.
