The office will be closed from 5pm Monday 23rd December to 9am Thursday 2nd January 2020.

We will not accept any new applications for help from 3pm Friday 20th December to 9am Thursday 2nd January 2020. Please do not send an application form to arrive during this period. It will not be processed so you may lose time in finding help from somewhere else.

If you have a hearing or deadline in January please send your fully completed application form to arrive with us five weeks before your hearing or deadline. Most barristers take holidays over Christmas. This means that there can be delays in processing applications for help due to the reduced availability of our volunteers.

Please be patient, particularly if you have no imminent hearing dates or deadlines.
