Who We Are

We help people to understand and protect their rights

Scales of justice made up of people

45 years working for social justice in Northern Ireland

Since 1977, we have provided free and independent legal services, helping thousands of people to challenge decisions that affect their rights. We use the law to change people’s lives.

Our service focuses on three areas: Social Security, Employment and Immigration.

As well as providing direct support to the public, we provide assistance, legal information, professional learning and quality assurance to the advice sector in Northern Ireland. We empower advisers to provide the best possible support to their clients.

Our Policy Team works to influence changes to law, policy and practice that will make a long-lasting difference to people’s lives.
