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."

Education Advice Service

Hero image

North East Law Centre has operated an Education Advice Service for several years which aims to reach vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. The service provides advice and support around school admission appeals, exclusion reviews, home-school transport, objections to the Schools Adjudicator, and complaints to the Local Government & Social Care Ombudsman.

Service purpose?

The demand for this service has significantly increased over the past few years, specifically around school admission appeals and school exclusions, as parents with school aged children are systematically denied access to justice because they are unaware of their rights.  

This service is now better integrated with all our other services to provide more holistic, family-centred, support and assistance to meet the needs of our beneficiaries and their families. 

The service also adopts a rights-based approach to improve the school admission experience for all parties and to help reduce exclusion, isolation, bullying, as well as the and the impact of domestic abuse on children and young people’s education.
