Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the Law Centre have had to cancel all volunteering programs until further notice. Please check back with us in early February on the website for further updates and follow us on twitter @NorthKenLC.
Volunteers are at the heart and soul of the Law Centre movement. We rely on our group of dedicated volunteers, who give up their time and resources to make our Law Centre work. We simply could not exist without them.
Our volunteers are students – at all levels of qualification – who volunteer around their study commitments. We also have qualified lawyers who volunteer around their other work and personal commitments.
Volunteers are at the front line of engagement with our clients. They run triage through reception by taking an initial assessment of the client’s enquiry and assign the client to appropriate support. Volunteers with specialist knowledge of housing, employment, crime, benefits and immigration may also help in each of our teams with casework and community projects.
We would be especially interested in volunteers who have any experience or knowledge of Family Law, Mental Health Law or Education Law.
If this is something that sounds interesting to you, please contact Zuleyha Toprak, our Legal Triage Coordinator on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send a CV and covering letter which references your interest in the Law Centre, and if you are successful, we will then be in touch to arrange an interview.
Please note: we may be unable to provide a reference if you cannot initially commit to a minimum of six months.
