Director of Hertfordshire Law Clinic Diana Kirsch said: “Since we launched two weeks ago, we have been overwhelmed with enquiries. We are very grateful to Cheryl and Ruth for helping us set up this desperately needed new service.”
Cheryl added: “This is a vital service for residents of Hertfordshire, where legal aid is scarce and it is almost impossible to get free housing advice. For people confused about their rights, struggling to pay their rent or worried about eviction, this service will offer essential advice and support.”
