Volunteer 

Volunteers are a central part of our service, supporting us with everything from admin to fundraising to legal casework. We also work with local universities to provide placements for Law Students. All of our volunteers and students have the opportunity to gain invaluable front-line experience of legal work whilst also supporting our clients and the organisation and making a real difference to many people’s lives.

We are not currently recruiting volunteers but if you are interested in working with us keep an eye on our website for updates later this year.
