The Mary Ward Legal Centre provides free, independent advice to people who live and work in London to help them access their legal rights and entitlements. The main areas of law they can help with are debt, housing and welfare benefits. Please note that help with welfare benefits is only available to people living, working or studying in Camden.
Mary Ward Legal Centre also runs free advice clinics with the support of volunteer lawyers, for people with problems that fall outside their our traditional casework including small claims, tax, consumer and contract law. These services are targeted at people on low incomes, and most advice services have specific eligibility criteria. You may need to provide proof of income. If they are not able to help you they will try to find alternative ways to help, or refer you to another agency. Mary Ward Legal Centre is unable to offer advice on immigration, family law or criminal matters and does not advise employers or landlords.
