Free places for local people to attend Prevention of Homelessness report launch

Two years ago Govan law Centre was awarded three years funding by the Oak Foundation to develop our 'Your Home Your Rights’ Prevention of Homelessness project.  We have produced a bi-annual progress report describing how we have expanded our homelessness prevention work, and stopped people and their families from losing their homes through eviction or repossession. 

Over 1,200 people have received GLC's free, independent and confidential prevention of homelessness services during the last two years in Glasgow, and our report describes –

* how we have achieved this;
* how we have developed our innovative service to be more effective;
* improvements to our early intervention work;
* access to our money and benefits advice services and other support; and
* how we have provided the much needed expert legal advice and representation when people come to us in crisis with their housing problems.
We are holding an event to launch our report on 29th January 2013, 10:30 (with lunch at 12:00) at The Victory Centre, 285 Langlands Road, Govan, Glasgow, G51 4AS.

There are 10 free places available for anyone living or working in the Greater Govan or Pollok areas. 
If you would like to book a free place then please phone Anne-Marie O’Brien at Govan Law Centre on 0141 440 2503. Please apply early as places are limited.  We look forward to seeing you there.
