We operate face to face advice drop in sessions in our Dovecot office and you can access our specialist services via these. If your enquiry falls within our remit, please come along. We are at The Dovecot Mac from 10am until 12pm every Monday and Thursday.

If you are unable to attend a drop in session, please fill in an online enquiry form which can be found on this website. 

We also cover the Housing Duty Possession scheme in both Liverpool & Birkenhead. This scheme is very much an emergency service for defendants who haven’t been able to obtain legal advice before their Court hearing. We can assist tenants and borrowers who have rent arrears and mortgage arrears, and in proceedings for anti-social behaviour.

We are at Liverpool court on Wednesdays and Fridays, and alternate Tuesdays for Birkenhead. For more information, please get in touch.
