The first step is to contact us through our helpline or by appointment at our legal surgeries.
We run a helpline every:
The helpline is available to any woman in Scotland looking for legal advice or information and it is run by our solicitors from JustRight 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.
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.
We offer fortnightly surgeries where appointments can be booked with our solicitor for legal information and advice. The surgeries take place in safe, women only centres located in the following places:
A trained support worker will be on hand if you wish to speak with her about the impact of your experience, how you are coping or how to access further support.
You can find more information on your local surgery here.
For email enquiries, please tell us:
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.
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.
