A Cramlington-based legal charity has received some useful support from a business growth and coaching organisation.

Mentoring provided at no cost by David Cliff, managing director of Gedanken Limited, is helping LegaCare to create a strategy for growth.

LegaCare offers legal advice for people who are diagnosed with dementia, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and it hopes that it will be providing services nationally within the next five years.

It does not seek to compete with high street solicitors and specialist probate and will agencies. Most of the individuals it supports are not in a position to afford the fees of any such organisations.
