How we can help

We know that if you cannot get legal aid and cannot afford the help of a solicitor, it is very stressful and difficult. We can:

  • Explain how the court works, help fill in forms, organise papers, and discuss settling issues without going to court
  • Help plan what you want to say in court, and if needed, go with you to court to provide support and help afterwards
  • Provide details of other specialist advice agencies, where possible, and help you find out whether you can get free legal advice
  • Please note we are unable to help with criminal cases (including motoring offences). Should you need help in this area, you can look for a free legal advice clinic that deals with crime.
