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."

FLOWS - project aims

The project is designed to ensure, through specialist support of front-line workers, access to legal remedies which enable women and children to protect themselves from violence, gain court-orders, access Legal Aid, and navigate court-processes. 

FLOWS addresses a significant gap in the availability of legal-advice resources for front-line professionals in Women’s Refuges, Women’s Aid organisations and organisations that provide safe environments to disclose abuse: for example, local Citizens Advice services, Law Centres, Law Clinics, and court-based services.
