Social Welfare Law : advice by appointment via online video meetings
We also provide generalist advice on Social Welfare Law matters via online video meeting appointments.
Unfortunately, due to demand we cannot guarantee to offer you an online video appointment as most of the advice we give is through our drop-in sessions.
Windrush Justice Clinic: advice by appointment via online video meetings
As part of our collaboration with the Windrush Justice Clinic we can provide initial advice on likely eligibility for the Windrush Compensation Scheme and gathering evidence in support of an application to the scheme. We will do our best to refer you to one of our partners who can assist in submitting an application to the scheme. Please note we cannot give immigration advice.
The Windrush Justice Clinic assists victims of the Windrush scandal to obtain compensation for the losses and distress they have suffered because of the hostile environment.
The Windrush Justice Clinic is run by a collaboration of partners, including the legal advice clinics at the University of Westminster, London South Bank University, North Kensington Law Centre, Southwark Law Centre, the Claudia Jones Organisation, the Windrush Compensation Project and the Jigsaw House Society.
