Greater Manchester Law Centre provides free legal advice and representation for homeless people and people who are at risk of losing their home living in Greater Manchester.

We have contracts to provide advice under Legal Aid for both housing and public law cases (public law cases if you are bringing a legal challenge against a government or public authority).

We have a full-time housing solicitor, Kathy Cosgrove, who supervises the housing department. Our housing casework volunteers also assist in providing housing advice.
