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."


The Law Centre is an equal opportunities employer, and we encourage individuals who are passionate about upholding the rights of the vulnerable and disadvantaged in society to come and work for us.

We are currently looking for a Treasurer to support us! For more information please see the document below:
