The health and wellbeing of our staff, clients and visitors is our top priority. On this page, we give up-to-date information about the services we offer and how you can access them during the coronavirus emergency. We are keeping our website updated with information about the special measures that have been put in place by the Government for welfare benefits, immigration and housing.

Information for everyone

Please contact the law centre by email or telephone instead of visiting whenever possible. We will try to avoid asking you to visit the law centre  but we will arrange an appointment with a member of our staff in person where necessary. Please do not visit the law centre if you or a member of your household have coronavirus symptoms or if you have had a positive test within fourteen days. If you do need to visit the law centre, please wear a mask, use the handwashing facilities or sanitiser that we provide, and maintain social distancing.

Information for existing clients

Your solicitor or caseworker will be working mainly from home, but you will still be able to contact them by telephone and email. We will avoid asking you to visit the law centre whenever possible, but we will arrange an interview in person where necessary.

Our reception staff may be able to tell you straight away if we can help; or may take details of your problem so that one of our solicitors or caseworkers can contact you about it later.
