Geographical remit: 


Harrow Law Centres is a legal charity which works within the community to defend the legal rights of local people. Specialising in social welfare law, we have an in-depth knowledge of the issues communities face. We use this knowledge to help people save their homes, keep their jobs and protect their families.

Harrow Law Centre was established in April 2010 by local people concerned at the lack of legal advice and representation for the most disadvantaged members of the community. It was intended to plug the gap in provision of legal advice and representation for those who could not afford to pay for a solicitor, and also to focus legal skills and knowledge on community needs.

We aim to do more than act as a 'band aid' solving individual cases. Instead we try to have a wider impact and therefore we undertake social policy and influencing work in addition to day to day case work.





We provide legal advice and representation in the following areas of law:

  • Asylum
  • Children and young people's rights
  • Community Care
  • Council Tax arrears
  • EU and Human Rights Law
  • Housing (primarily related to homelessness)
  • Public Law (judicial reviews against public bodies)
  • Welfare Benefits (Appeals to First or Second Tier Tribunal or above)
