"Tender Announcement

​Provision of Training Material"


Disability Law Service has been awarded a grant by the Cabinet Office's Local Sustainability Fund to:-

  • Recruit Volunteers who work as in-house Lawyers at corporations;
  • Provide training to the Volunteers in relevant areas of law which will be paid for by their employers;
  • Utilise the trained Volunteers such that the capacity of DLS to assist is increased;
DLS requires the preparation of detailed, high quality training material in the area of Employment and Discrimination Law as part of its work to execute the project. As the legal staff of DLS are fully engaged in client work it has been decided to outsource this requirement.

 The Tender document can be obtained by emailing David Laurence at 
Bidders have until 30/09/2016 to respond.
