Type of Law and Area
We provide specialist legal advice, casework and representation in Employment, Housing, Asylum/Immigration and Welfare Rights Law, mainly for people who live or work in the London Borough of Southwark.
We do not provide a drop in service or provide general information for the public. We take referrals from other agencies - for example, advice centres, councillors, social workers and community groups. To make a referral or discuss a case please ring 0207 732 2008 (Telephone hours: 10 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 5.30 pm). We have a duty solicitor from Monday to Thursdays (inclusive) who is able to speak to other agencies. Frontline workers can telephone for consultancy on welfare rights issues on Wednesdays between 10 am and 3 pm.
We provide an employment law telephone consultancy on Monday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm. Please note that this is only for agencies whose clients live, work or study in Southwark.
