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."
Support Us
"Without your support, we simply won’t be able to provide the range of free and affordable services that we do to the local community, you, your family and friends."


You can also offer your time or services, pro bono. For example, many of our services are provided on a voluntary basis and, without volunteers, we wouldn’t be to offer the range of support that we do. For more information, please call us on 0191 230 4777 or email [email protected]
