New website improves access to free legal advice across Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire people in need of advice on a wide range of legal topics are being urged to log onto a new countywide website set up to signpost them to support organisations across the county.
The Gloucestershire Legal Advice Network (GLAN), a consortium of not-for-profit legal advice providers, including Gloucester Law Centre, Shelter and the County's Citizens' Advice Bureaux, are behind the new website www.adviceglos.org.uk
The site, created to improve access to advice in Gloucestershire, was funded by the county Performance Reward Grant.
People visiting the website will be able to search for local and national organisations offering free legal advice on a range of topics including community care, consumer, debt and money, discrimination, education, employment, family, health, housing, immigration, mental health and welfare benefits and tax credits.

The listing for each organisation will include phone and email contact details as well as outlining their geographic reach and providing a summary of how they help the public.
The website was officially launched by Gloucester Mayor Councillor David Brown.
Anne Whitworth, Senior Solicitor at Gloucester Law Centre, who has co-ordinated the website project on behalf of GLAN said: "There are a wealth of extremely professional organisations in Gloucestershire offering free legal advice to people on benefits or low incomes, but many people do not know how to contact them.
"The new website is designed to signpost people to these readily available services so they do not have to worry for longer than necessary about how they are going to find the legal advice they need," added Anne.
A comprehensive marketing campaign has been designed to run alongside the launch of www.adviceglos.org.uk. Adverts will appear on community radio stations Gloucester FM and Stroud FM, while flyers and posters will be distributed across the county.
