HCLC participates in Hackney Adult Learners Week!

Hackney Community Law Centre was delighted to participate in the 2012 Hackney Adult Learners Weekan annual event, funded by the Skills Funding Agency, which brings together a wide range of education and learning providers in Hackney to deliver exciting and inspirational free workshops for people who wish to learn something new or brush up on existing skills.  The festival programme was co-ordinated by the Adult Learning Services team at The Learning Trust and Hackney Libraries, in association with local schools, children’s centres, heritage centres and community organisations.

Hackney Community Law Centre delivered two ‘pop-up’ legal advice sessions on Monday 14th May 2012 between 11am and 2pm at Hackney Central Library and Friday 18th May 2012 between 11am and 2pm at Dalston CLR James Library.

Here are some photos from the sessions:
