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.
