SWLAC wins prestigious Pro Bono award

We are thrilled to announce that we were nominated for, and were the winners of the LawWorks Pro Bono Award 2020 for “Best Digital or Virtual Pro Bono Activity.”

This is an acknowledgement of the enormous changes made to our working practices since the start of Lockdown 1 to enable our advisers to give advice from locations other than the Centre itself. All our volunteers are to be congratulated, but special mention and thanks must go to Trustee Elaine Vignoli, who was responsible for devising and implementing the new system, and who worked tirelessly in effecting these changes and in keeping the advice service going through exceptionally difficult times.
