It is a time of new beginnings for Merseyside Law Centre. We have said farewell to a few members of our team who moved onto pastures new and we have welcomed fantastic, experienced and enthusiastic new members of staff to join us in our fight for access to justice. We have hired a new Housing/Social Welfare Case Worker Mark Casey and a new Triage Co-Ordinator Donna Sullivan. We are also welcoming a new Immigration Solicitor, Jo Bezzano.
Jo's background includes work in immigration and asylum law and specialising in advising and representing unaccompanied asylum seeking children. She previously worked for University of Liverpool in their Law Clinic and she worked three years as a lawyer in the Solomon Islands as well as working in the UK Department of International Development. We are so excited to welcome her into our team and for our clients to benefit from her extensive experience and passion for social justice.
The Kuumba Imani Centre is now our new home in central Liverpool. We have closed the doors to our Bold Street office after nearly 16 years. We are thrilled to have moved to L8, the original home of the incredible L8 Law Centre. We are so looking forward to being a part of such a vibrant community renowned for its engagement in social activism. We will still have a presence in Dovecot and our drop ins at Dovecot Mac will remain the same.
