We are delighted to confirm an exciting new partnership with Community Action Norfolk (CAN), an independent charity which provides practical advice and support to community and voluntary groups across the country. Clapham & Collinge Solicitors will now be working closely with caseworkers at CAN, offering a free telephone helpline and email to their development team on behalf of clients to be used if they have any legal queries, require input from a specialist Solicitor or a second opinion on issues that are raised by CAN clients.
CAN is the leading organisation for engagement within the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector in Norfolk. They work with over 500 organisations directly a year with links to over 5,000 organisations, volunteers and community champions. They provide support to these organisations, from helping to find funding and planning a community project, to engaging service users, strategic planning and helping to build necessary relationships to collaboratively develop policies and services.
Neale Grearson, Partner and Head of Charities Department said ''This is a fantastic new partnership to enable us to support the valuable services already supplied by CAN. It is a great endorsement of our developing charities department which is now one of the market leaders in this field in Norfolk.''
Jonathan Clemo, Chief Executive at Community Action Norfolk said "This partnership is a great way that we can provide extra support to the charities and community organisations we are here to help. Running a charity or community group can be challenging and it's important that organisations have access to the best quality advice and CAN aims to be their first port of call"
