Liberty’s Advice and Information service provides free legal guidance on human rights issues by phone, email, letter and a specialist online information hub to anyone in England and Wales. The specialist team provides a lifeline to thousands of people who don't know where to turn to for help.
Human rights law protects everyone – but many people don’t know what their rights are or how to use them. With threats to the Human Rights Act, alongside reductions in services for vulnerable people, and cuts to legal aid for family, immigration, housing and employment cases, demand for free legal advice has never been greater. And the coronavirus crisis has further highlighted inequalities in society and the importance of free, independent and accessible legal advice.
