Community Legal Service
The Community Legal Service (CLS) is a network of LSC funded organisations and advice providers that fund, provide and promote civil legal aid services. Civil law deals with disputes between individuals or organisations.
People experiencing social problems often need legal advice in areas such as relationship breakdown, debt, housing, domestic violence and benefits. Help is also available for asylum and immigration, education, employment, mental health and community care issues.
