Welcome to Norfolk Community Law Service (NCLS)

About NCLS

We are a registered charity dedicated to providing access to justice and equality in Norfolk.

We target our services at individuals and groups, particularly those who cannot afford access to justice and representation. This includes, for example, those with long term physical and/or mental ill-health, physical and sensory disabilities and/or learning difficulties, offenders, ex-offenders, migrant workers and others who are disadvantaged. The advice we offer is non-discriminatory and confidential.

Our funding comes from a range of grants, service level agreements and donations – more information can be found in our latest Impact Report which is available here
