Due to moving premises and settling into our new home we are not currently recruiting any volunteers but please keep an eye on our website, Twitter and Facebook where we’ll be advertising specific volunteer roles soon.
From the beginning, we have been more than a Law Centre. We are a campaign for free access to justice. We demand free legal advice and representation for all who need it, and we challenge unjust legislation and policy.
The group was launched in June 2017. Volunteers research and write articles on topical legal issues, so that we can use our platform to bring important legal questions to the fore. These articles have been picked up by external news sources such as the Legal Voice, and widely shared on social media.
See our articles so far:
Volunteers organise fundraising events and activities to support our fight for free access to justice. For example, GMLC volunteers organised a team for the Great Manchester Run 2018 and raised over £2,000.
This includes showing our support for campaigns and movements related to our own, fundraising, recruiting and keeping our ear to the ground in our community.
We have supported:
This includes updating our website and keeping out mailing lists up to date.
“I now help run the website, provide research support for campaigning activities and help publicise and run events. Working for the GMLC has been a rewarding experience and I’m excited by the ways in which it can continue to improve and strengthen our community in the future.” – Campaign Volunteer Tom Goldup
Many of these roles are flexible, because they involve working outside of office hours and away from our premises.
