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 North East Law Centre is only able to provide support to those who need it, and cannot readily access it, due to the funding we receives through the Legal Aid Agency, strategic partnerships, grants, and charitable donations. It is the charitable donations that have the greatest impact though, as these represent funds that we can freely allocate to areas of our service that most need it.

Why donate?

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop

For decades, we have strived to represent the local community as best we can and ensure they receive justice by defending their rights and best interests. 

Access to continuing funding and securing financial support is becoming increasingly challenging, therefore providing the services we do, and maintaining that provision, is no easy task.

Any contribution to the Centre is extremely valuable and every single penny donated goes into the provision of legal services for the local community. No donation is too small as every little helps.

Just to give you an example:

  • £5 pays for one day of volunteer travel expenses
  • £20 pays for one hour of our free telephone advice line
  • £30 pays for an interpreter for a client
  • £75 pays for us to run one of our ‘Access to Justice in the Community’ courses for a community group
  • £90 pays for an appointment plus follow up in family law or immigration law

A donation to the North East Law Centre will help us continue to seek justice on behalf of those who need it most.

You can donate via paypal.
