Social Policy

Through its wide and lengthy experience, The Community Advice and Law Service is well placed to comment on changes in legislation where it will impact on people in our communities. We seek to influence social policy across a range of issues. CALS will submit comment on proposed changes to Legal Aid, Welfare Benefits, Consumer Credit Legislation and County Court Practice either directly or through co-operation with other local or national bodies.
