Our Foodbank has strong links with other groups and organisations who can offer advice and support.
Our particular thanks go to the Walcott Foundation for providing the funding for advice workers from Centre 70 or Brixton Advice team at Foodbank sessions. No appointment is required and sessions are open to those in the community, not just Foodbank clients.
Duncan Lewis Solicitors
Duncan Lewis are pleased to be able to support the foodbank by offering a free legal clinic every month. We want to help people address the underlying issues behind the crisis that led them there in the first place. Sometimes the problem isn’t what led them to foodbank but it’s still a problem and we want to try and help them find a solution. If we can’t help on the day we can try and find a specialist who can.
Duncan Lewis’ motto is “We give people a voice”. As solicitors serving the people, we represent over 20,000 new clients a year in offices across London and in most of the major cities in England and Wales. We therefore take our motto very seriously and do our utmost to listen to our client’s problems first, and then try our best to speak out on their behalf.
Our solicitors and lawyers actually do care about their clients and are committed to providing the best possible service to them in the most caring and careful manner. We are the largest legal aid providers in the UK and have specialist solicitors in: family & Childcare, Crime, , Housing, Immigration, Litigation, Employment, Mental Health, Personal Injury, Civil Liberties & Human rights, Professional Negligence, Professional Regulation and Public Law.
When: Norwood Distribution Centre, St Luke’s Church, 2nd and last Friday of every month
Brixton Advice Centre
Brixton Advice Centre promotes access to justice by providing good quality legal advice and representation to people who would otherwise be unable to afford legal services. We specialise in advice on housing, homelessness, welfare benefits and debt.
We provide advice at outreach venues around Lambeth, including at Brixton Foodbank (Tuesdays and Saturdays, 10am to 1pm).
You don’t need an appointment and you don’t need to be visiting for a food parcel – you can just drop in for advice only
Advice is provided by our staff on a range of advice areas eg debts, housing issues and benefits
