They operate out of offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as having a number of projects which extend our services to individuals living in 11 local authority areas stretching across the country.
Their specialist areas of law include:

In addition to casework for clients and training for advice agencies in our specialist areas of law, they also operate telephone advice lines, awareness-raising sessions and workshops for young people.
