Find out more about our fight for free access to justice: download our Manifesto here.

Greater Manchester Law Centre started as a protest against cuts and closures. We have been open to the public for three years, providing a welcoming face-to-face service. We’ve provided support to people to challenge benefit decisions at tribunals, legal representation for people who are homeless or facing eviction, given expert employment law advice, and through all this we have been developing a new generation of social welfare lawyers.

But while we work with individuals, we have to challenge the policies which produce the hardships they and many others are facing in the first place. That is why we set out our purpose in our recently launched manifesto “Fighting Together for Free Access to Justice”.

We are going against the grain, and we are growing stronger. We are recruiting a Director, Social Welfare Solicitors and a Welfare Benefits Supervisor who share our passion for solidarity, not sympathy. Join the fight: find out more about the Director, Solicitor and Welfare Benefirts Supervisor roles at GMLC.

We are saddened and frustrated by the news that Lambeth Law Centre has been forced to close. Law Centres need proper public funding to survive. As CEO of @SWLLawCentres said: "Only then will we ensure justice isn't limited to those who can afford to pay for it." #accesstojustice https://t.co/TQdXuwrrjA
