Despite the terrible weather conditions on the day, we had a great turnout of community members, all of whom found the talk very enlightening.

The Durban office recently made contact with the KZN Blind and Deaf Society and we held our first seminar for them on 15 November 2016. Sanelisiwe Nyasulu of Garlicke and Bousfield spoke about housing.

This was very well attended and it was heartwarming to see the gratitude emanating from the attendees and staff. These are members of our communities who have no access to the kinds of legal resources that we offer; the majority receiving government grants. During the course of the seminar we realised that there is an urgent need for a help desk as many attendees are in need of legal assistance. As such, we have decided to hold a special help desk with several attorneys in attendance to consult with as many people as possible. This will be held on 6 December. We are sure that it will be a great success and we will report on progress in a future issue.
