Avon and Bristol Law Centre

Grant: £82,011

The Virtual Law Centre is a Skype based service providing specialist legal advice from pro bono solicitors and barristers based in Bristol to clients in more rural areas of the South West who do not have access to pro bono services. The project is hosted by Avon and Bristol Law Centre working closely in partnership with Citizens Advice North Somerset and Citizens Advice South Somerset whose clients will be accessing the service. The project aims to develop to include more partners and provide a comprehensive network of pro bono advice across the region.

The aim is to start with family law and employment with one off advice sessions but build up to an end to end casework service as the project develops.

Focus will be on helping the most vulnerable people to resolve their legal issues quickly and helpfully, with clients being supported on to further services where needed. The aim is to provide a much needed service in areas where people have no access at all to free specialist legal advice and representation.
