The first step is to contact us through our helpline or by appointment at our legal surgeries.
We run a helpline every Tuesday from 6pm-9pm, Wednesday from 1.30pm-4.30pm and Friday from 10am-1pm available to any woman in Scotland looking for legal advice or information. The helpline is run by our solicitor and advocacy worker, staff from JustRight Scotland supported by Rape Crisis Scotland and students from the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic.
On request, we can arrange language interpreters.
The helpline can be extremely busy, please keep trying to get through. Due to the volume of calls we receive, we cannot respond to voicemails. Please see our resources before calling as there may be information that will assist you. If you have an urgent legal query and are not able to get through to our helpline, please seek alternative legal advice. The Law Society of Scotland has a database of solicitors available here.
Every other week in Glasgow and every month in Lanarkshire, we offer a surgery where appointments can be booked with our solicitor for legal information and advice. A trained support worker will be on hand if you wish to speak with her about the impact of your experience, how you are coming or how to access further support. Both centres are safe, women only spaces.
Call 0141 552 3201 to book an appointment at our Glasgow surgery. Our Glasgow surgery is open forthnightly by appointment on Mondays from 10am-2pm.
Call 01236 432 061 to book an appointment at our Lanarkshire surgery. Open monthly, Monday 10am – 2pm.
We can’t always fully answer queries by email. This is because there are often things that we would need to ask you about your situation to be able to give you the correct advice. It is usually best to do this by telephone as this is a good way for us to get the information we need quickly and give you the advice you are looking for as quickly as we can.
For email enquiries, please tell us:
If you are not able to speak on the phone please also let us know and we will give you as much assistance as possible by email.
