Free legal advice for and about kids - we can help you with any questions about the law
We are the only Law Centre in Scotland that works exclusively for children and young people. We provide services throughout the whole of Scotland.
We help children and young people, their families and carers, and professionals working for and with children by providing free expert legal advice and information through our advice line, email and website.
We also provide a wide range of training on the law and children's rights to groups and individuals across Scotland, and produce a range of publications and on various legal issues. We also do visits to schools and young people's organisations.
You can contact us for legal advice by phone, email or letter. We will return calls received at busy times, but not to international numbers.
