What people say about our course

“Working with the Pro Bono Community scheme has been incredible. The volunteer we were assigned is amazing. She has been so useful in dealing with casework and clients due to being well-informed and with excellent skills to tackle the varied work she has been presented with. The administrative support from PBC has been very well organised and a pleasure to work with. Our advice and advocacy service has greatly benefitted by working with our first volunteer from PBC. She has asked to continue working with us after her placement ends.”
