GRENFELL TOWER DISASTER
Daily Legal Advice (Monday to Friday 10am-5pm)
We are helping local residents affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster to get the legal advice and access to justice they need. If you are a former resident of the Tower or Walk, or if you are from the Lancaster West Estate and have been affected by the disaster, then please call us to see if we can help and to book an appointment.
In relation to the Grenfell Tower disaster, we are helping residents with:
- Housing (emergency, temporary and permanent) for residents from Grenfell Tower and the surrounding Lancaster West Estate;
- Immigration applications (for survivors and family members);
- The Voluntary Interim Payment Scheme;
- Charitable grants; and
- Accessing other services they may be entitled to.
If your issue is something we cannot help you with, we will help you find another organisation who may be able to assist you.
NORTH KENSINGTON LAW CENTRE
We work in the community in West London to help people with their legal problems. We seek the best outcomes for those facing disadvantages in the areas of employment, housing, welfare benefits, immigration, criminal defence and prison law. Our clients mainly live in West London but we can sometimes help people from across London.
Alongside our legal aid services we offer some low cost and fixed-fee services. Our fees are set, so that from the very start it is clear how much you will pay.
Whether you have been unfairly treated, dismissed or discriminated against at work, we can help. We offer fixed-fee and ‘no win, no fee’ legal help and representation on employment matters. We only ever represent employees so you can be assured that we will work tirelessly on your behalf to help you reach your goal.
At present we can only offer help to clients who qualify for Legal Aid. We offer a Monday morning housing clinic where we will assess your case and tell you if you qualify for free legal representation under our legal aid contract. If so, you will be given an appointment with our housing solicitor.
Immigration & Asylum:
Our highly experienced immigration solicitors can offer you a fixed fee service on a range of immigration matters. Whether you want to extend your permission to stay or apply to stay permanently in the UK, we can help. Find out if you also qualify for free legal help and representation.
Our welfare benefits caseworker offers advice on welfare benefits issues to people who live in Kensington and Chelsea only. We specialise in helping people to challenge unfair decisions about their benefits.
We hold a crime clinic every Thursday. We aim to give you basic advice on your criminal law matter, whether or not you are entitled to legal aid. We will also advise whether you are entitled to advice and representation under our legal aid contract. If so, we will be able to represent you throughout the investigation at the police station and at court if necessary.
We provide representation at adjudications and at parole board hearings
