The Law Centre announced that it has taken the decision to close its doors for the final time on 31 March 2023.
A closure crisis in August 2022 led to a funding injection from the council, that allowed the Law Centre to continue its important homelessness prevention work. That funding is about to run out, so the trustees have sadly, and with little option, made the difficult decision to close the Law Centre after nearly 20 years.
We salute the commitment and perseverance of the team, trustees and volunteers, who have kept services going for so long and in such tough circumstances. The Law Centre’s loss will be keenly felt among its peers in the Law Centres movement.
However, it is the local community that will feel the Law Centre’s loss most bitterly, and recent comments online reflect this. It has been a lifeline and a beacon of support for vulnerable local people in very difficult times and many will struggle without the support it has given in the past.
