Feedback from GMLC affiliates and co-working organisations

GMLC were the only responder to Long Covid Support’s national call for collaboration with the Employment Advocacy Team in early 2021. Their ongoing input to our campaigns on employment and benefit-related matters along with providing advice and guidance for people living with Long Covid has been highly valued and appreciated by many. GMLC is also a trusted partner of LongCovidWork and has provided welfare rights expertise and guidance for advocacy work for Occupational Therapy for Long Covid, such as this recent PIP information sheet for people with Long Covid.

Greater Manchester Unite Community branch is affiliated to GMLC and supports its work in the local community. Our branch has benefited from working directly alongside staff and volunteers, especially in the area of campaigning around benefits / Universal Credit. We have been able to share ideas and resources. On our leaflets we signpost benefit claimants to the Law Centre. Our members have had the opportunity of taking part in a Zoom Training session provided by specialists in the field of welfare rights, and our branch welcomed a speaker from the Law Centre at a recent branch meeting.

GMLC are an invaluable partner to the Tenants Union. We would not be able to provide the support we do to tenants at risk of eviction, or battling their landlords for repairs, were we not supported in critical moments by the housing team at the Law Centre. It’s a partnership we hope will last far into the future.
