In both Glasgow and 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 coping or how to access further support. Both centres are safe, women only spaces.
The Glasgow surgery runs forthnightly and the Lanarkshire surgery runs monthly.
Sometimes we are also able to provide free legal representation in cases where there is unmet or complex legal need, for example where a woman cannot afford a solicitor but is not eligible for legal aid. We would always have to consider the circumstances of the particular case, and our capacity.
The Scottish Women’s Rights Centre can also provide legal information and advice to professionals who support or advocate for women victim-survivors of gender based violence through our helpline.Find my location
