LAMBETH LAW CENTRE – CLOSURE – 15 JULY 2019
It is with great regret that the trustees of Lambeth Law Centre announce the closure of the Law Centre with immediate effect.
Unfortunately, the Law Centre has faced financial pressures caused by legal aid cuts and increased operating costs. To some degree this was relieved with generous support from our charitable funders, who have understood the need in the community and helped us address it.
However, ultimately the funding shortfall, together with issues with VAT calculations, have put the Law Centre in an impossible financial position. Having failed to secure emergency funding to keep the Law Centre going, we were left with no choice but to decide on closure.
The Law Centre’s team is working hard to ensure that all current clients are notified and that their cases are transferred to other advisers in the borough or nearby. We also hope that some of our staff will be able to join other Law Centres or advice agencies.
We would like to thank all of our staff, volunteers and supporters for all they have done over the years for the success of the Law Centre and the care for our clients.
