Brent Community Law Centre barrister and client.
After nearly fifty years of dedicated service, Brent Community Law Centre, in north London, has now closed.
Like many charities, it has been significantly weakened by unrelenting public funding cuts, while demand for its help has grown.
An orderly closure is underway and clients and partners have been informed.
The chair of Brent Council's Community and Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee, Cllr Ketan Sheth, said that "It was much used and appreciated lifeline for many, many Brent residents over the past decades."
The Law Centres Network's head of policy and profile, Nimrod Ben-Cnaan, said:
"Like every Law Centre that closes, Brent's loss will be felt not just by the local community but by our national network of Law Centres, among whom it was one of the most longstanding members.
"We are already exploring ways to re-establish a Law Centre service in the London Borough of Brent and hope to do so before long."
