About Us
"Our model of legal support makes us stand out from the rest - we care about our clients’ situations and will help them as much as we can, through our free or affordable services."
Our Services
"One of the greatest challenges to accessing specialist legal advice is that people don’t always recognise that their problem has a legal resolution. Providing people with specialist legal advice quickly so that we can support them to resolve their problem remains a priority for us."

Our volunteers

North East Law Centre is supported by a small number of dedicated volunteers who allow our services to go much further. Our volunteers work across areas of law, providing specialist expertise and support.
