A service that helps disadvantaged people across Surrey defend their legal rights is back on track with a number of new legal advice clinics.

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 10.43.03Although the Surrey Law Centre has now closed its office in Chertsey Street, Guildford, it is currently offering advice by phone and email, but is hoping to acquire new premises in the county soon.

It also has a new telephone number – 0330 002 009.  The service can be called every day except Wednesday between 10am and 3pm.

A spokesman said: “We are currently a virtual office, communicating by telephone and email, but we are launching three new clinics from the beginning of April, covering family, employment and civil law. These will be in Epsom, Woking and Woodhatch [Reigate].”

A domestic abuse clinic will also be available in Guildford on the last Thursday of every month between 1.30pm and 4pm launching on April 30.

The Epsom clinic will run on a Monday between 5.15pm and 7.15pm (fortnightly) launching on April 13.

The Woking clinic will run on a Thursday between 6pm and 8pm (fortnightly) launching on April 2.

The Woodhatch clinic will run on a Wednesday between 6.15pm and 8.15pm (family one week, employment the next) launching on April 1.

The spokesman added: “We are not releasing the addresses of the locations on our website or flyers, as these are appointment-only clinics and we do not want to be in a position where people come along  without booking an appointment and are then disappointed as they will not be able to be seen.”

The Surrey Law Centre will also be offering ​in the next month or so clinics in Dorking, which will run on the alternate Monday to the Epsom clinic between 6pm and 8pm and a Godalming clinic, which will run on the alternate Thursday to the Woking clinic, between 6pm and 8pm.  They will also be expanding across Surrey with more clinics in the near future.

It is organising a sponsored walk that will be taking place on June 1 in Guildford. Information about it coming soon on the Surrey Law Centre’s website
