ADVOCACY AND LEGAL ADVICE SERVICES

HELPING YOU TO MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS.

we believe that everyone should access justice when other routes to justice are being closed off.

Lately, STN witnessed an increase in the number of people who face different forms of discrimination and injustice such as women who are facing domestic violence and are not entitled to public recourse because of their legal status, some also suffer from unfair treatment by their employers; landlords; homelessness, etc.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, we can provide you with initial advice on how to proceed.

 

 

STN supports our groups who are facing different forms of discrimination and injustice

 

These vulnerable groups desperately need the provision of legal advice aid and assistance. STN aims to tackle unmet legal needs.

STN has now worked with a group of professional solicitors, barristers, counsellor, qualified legal advisors and law centres who specialise in immigration, housing, and others to help our beneficiaries who face problems with housing, immigration, domestic violence, welfare rights, and others.

Through this partnership and cross-referrals help us to provide specialist and independent legal advice, law centres, advocacy, mediation, and representation services to our local community to protect and ensure the positive health and well-being of residents, clients, partners, and all staff.

We offer high-quality, personalised services that help our beneficiaries to achieve real improvements to their situations.

We will also have an appointed caseworker to provide essential specialist advice and other legal services with the help of dedicated volunteers.

Employment rights violations can be varied. For example:

  • you may not be receiving holiday or sick pay.
