VOLUNTEERS

The Law Centre is a resource for the whole community and it relies on support from the local community in order to provide all the services it offers

Hundreds of volunteers every year give us their time, energy and motivation to help tackle the root causes of poverty, injustice and crisis that affect the most vulnerable people in the society. Last year, we assisted clients with advice and representation. We simply couldn’t do this without the help and support of our volunteers, they enable us to increase the number of people we can assist.

 

There are many ways that you can get involved in the Law Centres’ work

 

Pro Bono Advice Clinics

 

The Law Centres is proud to work with one of the largest network of pro bono volunteer solicitors, who are committed to share their expertise with members of the community, by providing free, high quality legal advice at our evening Legal Advice Clinics, across 5 boroughs: Croydon, Wandsworth, Wimbledon, Kingston and Merton. To volunteer as an adviser, you must have a current, valid practicing certificate together with experience in Law you wish to advise on.

Other kinds of volunteering

 

Volunteering at SWLLC is a great way to gain valuable work experience, learn new skills and meet new people. At our friendly offices, we truly value our volunteers because they bring invaluable enthusiasm to our work whilst making a difference to those that are most in need of our support.

If you want to offer your time and experience in these or other way please see the links on the left-hand side of the page, which contains the role descriptions and criteria we may need for the some of the posts.

Please note that we advertise roles and accept new application on a rolling basis

 

Contributing to the costs of providing legal advice

 

The demand for our help is always greater than our ability to provide advice to everyone who asks for it. This is due in part to the limited number of staff we are able to employ at any one time, and the restrictions resulting from the limited amount of funding we are able to secure for our work. 

 

For a limited time all donations will be doubled via match funding, please donate today.
