To book an appointment, please phone 020 8767 2777. Our phone lines are very busy at the moment, so please leave us a voicemail (including your name and phone number) and we'll call you back as soon as we can.

 

Once you've booked an appointment, you'll be given a specific time when one of our pro bono advisers will call you. Please note that this call will come through as a 'Private number'. Please ensure you answer the phone, as unfortunately our busy advisers may not be able to call you more than once.

 

Please email scans or photographs of all relevant documents to booking@swllc.org before your telephone advice appointment. You can download a guide to what documents you'll need.
