How to make a referral to Southwark Law Centre

If you are from another agency and you wish to make a referral please call us to discuss the case on 0207 732 2008. If we can't take the case we will try to help source other advice providers or assist with resolving the problem.

Please do not advise the client to come to the Law Centre without a referral/appointment -  we will not be able to see them before calling, please try to obtain enough information about the case to enable us to assess the referral properly when you call us and please try and obtain relevant documents from the client, for example:

    • notice of eviction
    • dismissal letter
    • decision letter(s) from the Homeless Persons’ Unit/Benefits Agency/Home Office
    • details of the client’s income

Please do not delay in referring the client to the Centre – as appointments are booked up very quickly.

Please check any deadlines.
