St. Hilda’s enjoys a longstanding partnership with a number of national law firms and together we provide a legal advice service at Sonali Gardens Centre.

This is a well-used and much needed resource for the local community that runs alongside St. Hilda’s Daytime Advice Service. The Legal Advice Service is delivered on a pro bono basis by law firm staff who volunteer weekly. Legal advice for issues such as housing matters, welfare benefits, debt, consumer problems and employment issues—as well as a range of other subjects—is provided.

Drop in Sessions

Drop in Sessions are available on Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at Sonali Gardens in Shadwell.
