How we help

We seek to protect legal rights, and do so by providing high quality legal advice and representation for those experiencing mental illness, poverty, homelessness, employment issues, incapacity, or any other vulnerable circumstances.

We recognise the challenges that you face, and can assist you by providing the knowledge and expertise that you need in order to ensure that you have fair and equal access to justice. Our person-centred approach ensures that the service we provide is tailored to your unique circumstances.

We have strong working relationships with other organisations in the sector and can make referrals to partners where necessary for money advice and welfare benefits.

A list of partners that we work with can be found here.
