40 Years Of Helping Leicestershire
Community Advice and Law Service (CALS) has been a beacon of hope for the past 40 years in Leicester and Leicestershire, offering advice and support in debt, housing, and welfare benefits to those people in our society facing difficulties and disadvantage resulting in social welfare law problems.
A special event took place in the prestigious surroundings of the City Rooms in Leicester on Wednesday 13th November, with guests from local businesses, law firms and the CALS team all on hand to celebrate the milestone anniversary.
Guests were given the opportunity to learn more about CALS and the work it does via speeches from both Kathryn Burgess, Executive Director at CALS and Chilli Reid, Executive Director at Advice UK. There was also a chance to ask questions and engage with the speakers throughout the evening.
Kathryn Burgess, Executive Director at CALS, said: “We are incredibly proud of the work that we do at CALS and to be able to celebrate 40 years of giving support and advice to those who need it most is very humbling.”
“We hope that the event has given our guests an insight into the work we do and the challenges faced by many people on a daily basis. It’s tough but extremely rewarding work and we truly hope that CALS will be here to provide its services for as long as people need help and advice to resolve their problems.”
