Law Centre advisers are highly skilled to give you the best legal advice to help you solve your problems and get on with life.

To find your local Law Centre, take a look at our interactive Google map or see the Law Centres list.

All Law Centres offer face-to-face legal advice to local residents, and some run a telephone advice line.

Some Law Centres also provide advice to community groups on issues such as legal structure and governance. 

All Law Centres specialise in social welfare law, covering some or all of the following areas:

  • Welfare rights
  • Disability rights
  • Immigration and asylum
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Employment rights
  • Community care
  • Discrimination
  • Debt

Other areas of work might include:

  • Public law
  • Mental health
  • Family law
  • Education rights
  • Young people and children’s rights

If your local Law Centre cannot help you, they will try to refer you to another nearby organisation that can, or to a nationwide specialist helpline.

If there is no Law Centre in your area, you might want to find out about other sources of advice.
