Community legal services partnership
The Surrey Heath and Woking Community Legal Service was established in April 2000 with the aims of more effective targeting of public funds to meet local need for information, advice and legal services, and to ensure that all the funders and providers of these services work together. The development of the Community Legal Service Partnership has established that there are generally a sufficient number of providers offering specialist and general legal advice and help in the area. The concern is that these services are provided by a relatively small number of agencies and some additional gaps have been identified in provision. The strategy details ways in which these issues are being tackled.
