We help people on low incomes across south-west London to understand and defend their rights.

Our expert advisers provide free and independent legal advice on social justice issues, including housing, employment, debt, benefits and asylum.

Without the free or low-cost legal services our Law Centre provides, many local people would be locked out of getting justice, simply because they can’t afford a lawyer.

Each year we help around 8,000 people to to defend their rights, stay in their homes, clear debts, resolve employment problems, protect themselves and their families, and access essential benefit payments to protect them from poverty. You can find out more in our annual review.
