The Legal Drop in centre at St Michael’s was set up in February 2014 by the St Michael’s DCC, in response to the cutting back of Legal Aid. The Legal Drop in is facilitated by a team of volunteers from the St Michael’s congregation and community each Wednesday, when volunteer legal professionals come into the church to offer legal advice to members of the public.
Since the service began over 1000 clients have been offered free legal advice. The drop in was originally established thanks to a partnership with a team of legal professionals from Osborne’s Solicitors LLP, a local firm who provided legal professionals for the first 18 months. Since then the pool of volunteers has widened. Since autumn of 2015 we have been supported by legal professionals from Hodge Jones & Allen LLP.
Wednesdays 6.30-7.30pm at St Michael’s Church
Registration from 6pm
Please note: Legal Drop-In will be on hiatus during the month of August. It will start again in September
