Street Legal

Street Legal is an innovative partnership project between Clan Childlaw and Streetwork to ensure young people have easy access to free legal advice.

Combining the expertise of both organisations, the project provides free legal advice and support to young people (up to the age of 26) who are either experiencing, or at risk of homelessness in Edinburgh.
The project provides specialist training, support and guidance to Streetyouth practitioners on the legal rights of young people within the housing system. Through Street Legal we are better able to advocate for and empower the young people we support. We can also refer young people to Clan Childlaw if additional legal support is needed.
Street Legal is supported by Big Lottery funding.

Under 26 years? Need legal advice?

If you would like to refer someone to StreetLegal for help, or talk to us about a housing or family issue to see what legal help may be available please get in touch.
