Human rights and equality before the law are the cornerstone of a fair and just society. Everyone has a right to equality before the law. This is only possible if every person can access high quality, independent and expert legal assistance, regardless of their means to challenge unjust laws and circumstances.
Dignity and respect
We believe people should be able to live in their communities with dignity and respect. We aim to be empathetic and honest at all times.
We recognise the specific circumstances of individuals or groups and tailor our services accordingly. We will always do what we can to create an environment of trust so that clients can understand their rights and engage in any legal processes that concern them.
We must be free to champion the rights of the most disadvantaged and should be directly accountable to local people.
A commitment to social justice
We respond to needs in the community by raising the awareness of human and legal rights, pursuing test cases, influencing social policy and campaigning for social justice. We believe in early intervention and prevention, where possible. We are committed to working with local people, pursuing their cases until a just outcome is achieved.
