Derbyshire Law Centre
The Law Centre was set up in March 1989 and was initially financially supported by Chesterfield Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council. At the beginning there were four workers, one of whom is still with us today – Stephen Taylor.
Over the last 25 years we have developed and changed, growing from our base in Chesterfield, to offer advice and assistance across the county of Derbyshire. More about the history of Derbyshire Law Centre® can be found in our historical timeline: Changing Times for Derbyshire Law Centre®.
We continue to be very grateful to Derbyshire County Council who initiated the development of Derbyshire Law Centre, previously known as Chesterfield Law Centre® to be established and now, along with the support from Chesterfield Borough Council, North East Derbyshire District Council, Bolsover District Council and Derbyshire Dales District Council we continue from strength to strength.
In April 2014 we re-branded to Derbyshire Law Centre® to better reflect the services we provide across the county and moved to share premises with 3 other advice agencies.
