What people say about our training

“The Pro Bono Community training was excellent and meant that as volunteers we could quickly make ourselves useful to the hard-pressed law centres and advice agencies we were placed with.  There’s still a lot of on-the-job learning to do but it’s much easier when there’s some background knowledge to build on.”
