GLC goes to Eilean Siar (the Western Isles)

GLC's Principal Solicitor will provide a free legal seminar next week in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, on a range of contentious topics including welfare reform, the bedroom tax, payday loans and consumer credit law.

The event will see advisors and housing professionals from across Eilean Siar come together in Stornoway to discuss the impact of welfare reform, its interaction with payday lending and debt, and what can be done to protect the rights of islanders.

Separate meetings have been arranged with local advocacy workers, and tenant representatives to discuss the work of Govan Law Centre, the role of community law centres, and how the law can be used to both protect the rights of tenants and vulnerable citizens, and help deliver social justice in Scotland.
