The Hoxton Trust Copyright 2015
Starting in 1993, the Hoxton Trust began to offer a free legal advice service to the residents in and around Hoxton and Hackney. Over the years, we have worked with thousands of clients and taken on many Volunteer Advisers that are looking for experience and/or just trying to help a neighbour.
Currently, we have 2 part time Legal Advisers & 2 Volunteer Receptionists.
Accessing Legal Advice Services
The route in to receive free legal advice is through our Drop-In Session on Monday and Thursday from 10:30am to 12:30pm. We guarantee to see at least the first 10 people who show up at our office.
To be able to be advised, we require you to be a resident in Hackney. Once we review your case at the Drop-In Session, we will either schedule a follow up meeting or provide you with the tools you need to progress the case yourself.
We offer a variety of advice on welfare, benefits, debt, housing, employment, consumer and education issues. If you are unsure whether we can deal with your case or indeed if you require further clarification, you can call our Legal Advice Service on 020 7613 4174 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a current client, you can contact us on 020 7613 4174 or email us at email@example.com
We also provide legal advice from GP surgeries throughout the London Borough of Hackney in partnership with Social Action for Health (SAfH).
You can come and see us at:
Nightingale Practice on Tuesdays between 2.30pm and 5.30pm
Greenhouse Walk Practice on Tuesdays between 2:30pm and 5pm
Barton House Health Centre on Wednesdays between 2pm and 5pm
It is worth noting that in addition to these face to face appointments, Advisers will be working on your case in order to resolve the issues outside of these times.
