The safety and well-being of our staff, clients and volunteers is very important to us. During this period we aim to offer as full a service as possible but we have reluctantly decided to close our doors. Law Centre staff are still available to provide advice but we are limiting face-to-face contact and will be arranging appointments by telephone and email. If you already have an appointment at the Law Centre then we will be in touch.

We have set up alternative contact numbers if you are looking for advice or assistance. These are;

General enquiries 07342 116 424
Debt 07342 116 445
EUSS 07834 264 950/07713 848 996
Housing 07763 468 526
Welfare Benefits 07340 542 134

You can also contact the Law Centre via [email protected] or by clicking here.

If you are an existing client then please make sure that we have up-to-date contact details for you.

For clients facing possession proceedings/evictions we can provide the following update;

From tomorrow (27 March 2020) following a decision by the Master of the Rolls with the Lord Chancellor's agreement the court service will suspend all ongoing housing possession action – this means that neither cases currently in the or any about to go in the system can progress to the stage where someone could be evicted. This suspension of housing possessions action will initially last for 90 days, but this can be extended if needed. This measure will protect all private and social renters, as well as those with mortgages and those with licenses covered by the Protection from Eviction Act 1977. This will apply to both England and Wales.

For the EU Settlement Scheme, although the office remains closed, we will still be providing online appointments to help people make applications by phone or video.  Please call 07713 848 996 to make an appointment or get further information.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in these exceptional circumstances.
