- Forced Marriage
- Family & Mediation
Child Care Director & Solicitor Shazia Saliheen, who will be offering legal advice at the Legal Advice Clinic added;
We all live very busy and demanding lives and when you have to deal with family issues during working hours can be difficult. It is important to make our services available at times that are convenient for everyone to access. We hope that having an opportunity to speak to someone face-to-face to obtain advice after work hours about personal issues is invaluable and provides an opportunity to make informed decisions for their future.
