Youth Legal and Resource Centre

We are a specialist legal advice service for young people in the borough of Wandsworth, London, UK, giving free independent youth centred legal advice helping young people with housing and obtaining social services support.  We work with young people from every community, care leavers, young carers, disabled young people, asylum seekers and migrant children and their families.

That then enables young people to find other services they may need with help from our youth advice network, such as counselling, or get on with education or finding employment.

Our Opening Gates project is a specialist homelessness service for young people to assist them through the homelessness process, with telephone and/or face-to-face advice about their legal rights, making local authority appointments, accompanying them to interviews and chasing for decisions.
