Merseyside Law Centre

 Big thank you to Sam from Merseyside Law Centre who trekked all the way from Leeds for a extremely informative two day training session around a number of housing issues including Housing Disrepair . The aim of the course was to develop further our knowledge and understanding of these very complex issues so we can sign post  members of the community who regularly approach GTDT for advice and support . We plan to further develop this new partnership arrangement with Sam and her team looking at a number of options of how we can support the community. Will keep you updated on our plans going forward .
