Sorry We Missed You film screening and Q and A with the director Ken Loach

Join us at 6pm on Monday 3rd February 2020 at The Kloydyke Centre, 1 Burnage Grove, Levenshulme, Manchester M19 2HQ.

£10 Waged and £3 unwaged – tickets can be purchased HERE

Sorry We Missed shows the effect of the Gig Economy on a young family in the North East. We will discuss the issues raised and how communities across Manchester can respond to the issues of low pay, job insecurity and lack of employment rights.

All proceeds for the event will go to Greater Manchester Law Centre and will support our campaign to ensure the right of access to justice and advice for all communities across Greater Manchester.

Thanks to our sponsors Thompsons Solicitors and Zero Hours Justice Campaign for their on-going support.


Sign up to our Manifesto- “Fighting Together for Free Access to Justice”

 

At the Greater Manchester Law Centre we have a vision of a fairer society and we believe that every one of us has a part to play. We simply cannot stand silently by and watch the attack on the most poor and vulnerable in our communities worsen.

In this spirit, we launched our Manifesto- “Fighting Together for Free Access to Justice” in April 2019.

GMLC commits to fighting for the full restoration of legal aid, a supportive social security system, the next generation of social welfare lawyers, everyone’s right to a safe and secure home and an end to the hostile environment for benefit claimants and migrants.

We have received widespread encouragement for the demands we have made; MPs, local councillors, law practitioners and individuals across Greater Manchester have voiced their support for our Manifesto. But this is an ongoing fight and we need your help. If you agree with our demands for a fairer society we welcome you to join us by signing up to our Manifesto below.

We demand change and we urge you to join us in fighting together for free access to justice.

General Election 2019- Our Response.

Now that the General Election is behind us, Greater Manchester Law Centre implores the incoming Government to secure access to justice for the whole community.

The priorities set out in the Law Centre Manifesto remain the basis upon which we believe that access to justice for all can be achieved.

Our message of community solidarity and cohesion has a greater relevance in a post-Brexit environment. We will ensure that the universal right to accessible public services outlined in the manifesto is a unifying campaign, bringing people together for common benefit.

We are committed to ensuring that the social security system, access to affordable housing and publically funded legal advice are provided as a right for all. We will continue to work with communities, voluntary and campaign groups, charities, councils and other statutory agencies from across our region to support those facing injustice and inequality.

As part of this campaign and at the core of our work will be providing direct advice, advocacy and training to enable those that are in poverty and facing social exclusion get access to justice, and can overcome the hostile environment that many of them, particularly claimants and migrants, face.

We will continue to develop our capacity and that of other advice agencies and community organisations across Greater Manchester, providing training and development opportunities for the next generation of social welfare lawyers.

Get Involved! We invite individuals, voluntary groups, legal advice agencies and community campaigns to sign up to our manifesto here.

To ensure that access to justice and equality becomes a reality for everyone across Greater Manchester and across the UK

If you cut legal aid to the point that for most people it is either unavailable for most of their needs, it is not surprising if the public believe it is not available at all. #restorelegalaid https://t.co/XLkjwh770I
