Legal & Other Advice

As well as the Citizens Advice Bureau, legal advice is available through the Community Legal Service who carry details of local solicitors, law centres, other advice outlets and a range of organisations and agencies. and the CLS fund.

www.legalaiddevon.org.uk will help you find local providers of free, confidential and independent legal advice for residents of Devon, paid for by legal aid.

The Equality Act also carries valuable protection - follow this link for some suggestions on what may constitute 'reasonable adjustments'. There's lots of very helpful information on the Equality & Human Rights Commission's website.

Both ACAS and the Health & Safety Executive have produced valuable resources about stress at work, health and employment and related legislation and good practice.

The subject of criminal records and what constitutes a 'spent conviction' can also be a cause for concern for some. The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act  provides useful guidance.

Also visit www.gov.uk  for information on a wide range of topics.
