For many years the Hackney Community Law Centre has provided access to justice for vulnerable people from across Hackney and beyond.
The Centre was recently successful in securing new contracts from the Legal Services Commission which means it will be able to continue to support our community. Its legal advice service covers social welfare – which includes housing, debt, welfare benefits, employment, discrimination and community care - as well as immigration & asylum issues.
In addition to the Legal Services Commission funding which is now secure, the Centre also receives funding from Hackney Council and London Councils. It is a member of the Law Centres Federation, and is part of the campaign to defend access to justice in the face of the unprecedented cuts to legal aid that are being proposed by the current government.
