Welcome to the Isle of Wight Law Centre   


The Isle of Wight Law Centre is an independent registered charity, which was established in 2003 with the aim of providing a joined up approach  to social welfare law.  The Law Centre's predecessor was the Isle of Wight Independent Housing Advice Centre (HAC), and the Law Centre's success was built on the previous successes of the HAC, and rather than just specialising in housing, the Law Centre deals with all aspects of social welfare law:  housing, debt, welfare benefits, employment, and community care.  The Law Centre is primarily a case work driven organisation which can give both individuals and communities free legal advice and support, and also represent people in Court and tribunals.


We focus on getting the best outcomes for individuals/families, and further provide education services to empower people to take control of their lives, and it is that rigor and philosophy that has helped many Island people to transform their lives.


We hope that the navigation is simple and that you can find your way easily to what you need and who you would like to speak to.  Law Centre appointments are only a click away.

Law Centre Fundraising walk 


Several members of staff are completing a 10K Charity Walk on Monday 9th May 2016 (Southampton Legal Walk) to raise funds for our Charity Organisation.


The Isle of Wight Law Centre offers a free service to Isle of Wight residents in need of Housing, Benefit, Debt and Employment advice.

In order to continue offering this service we are always looking at ways to raise funds in order to keep our service free.


If you would like to sponsor us you can do so here.
