Who is the helpline for?

Our Helpline is available to any woman in Scotland who has experienced or is experiencing gender based violence and is looking for information about their rights. On request, we can arrange language interpreters.

What can I expect from a call?

When you call, we can offer initial legal information about your circumstances. If you need more specific legal advice, we recommend that you make an appointment to meet a solicitor at our surgeries.

The helpline can be extremely busy, please keep trying to get through. Read our legal guides before calling as there may be information that will assist you.

What if I have an urgent question?

If you have an urgent legal query and are not able to get through to our helpline, we ask that you seek alternative legal advice. The Law Society of Scotland has a database of solicitors available here.
