Legal Advice for Fair Housing for Frome

Fair Housing for Frome is also seeking periodic pro bono legal advice to ensure that we are running a legal and safe organisation.

This would entail attendance at Board meetings when invited to enable the Board to gain understanding of the legal position of current or future projects, and to act in an advisory capacity to inform the Board and staff of any future actions that need to be done.

If you’re interested in either of these opportunities, or would like more information, please contact Ali Barclay, Chair of Fair Housing for Frome.
