It is an exciting time for the organisation and I know that Enver will be instrumental in helping us ensure that we continue to offer high-quality services, support and legal representation to our growing number of clients, which will ensure the next phase of the charity's growth.”

Enver Solomon said: “Just for Kids Law is a dynamic, innovative and influential charity that punches well above its weight. With demand for its services growing and the need to protect children’s rights greater than ever before, the organisation has a vital role to play over the coming years. I very much look forward to continuing its great work and achieving real change for children and young people.”
