Scottish Women’s Rights Centre – Lanarkshire Surgery

Our Centre is a unique collaborative project that provides free legal information, advice, representation, and advocacy support for self-identifying women over 16 years of age affected by violence and abuse.

Our helplines are a first point of contact where women can speak to our solicitors or advocacy workers for advice and information. Our helpline number and opening times are as follows:

08088 010 789

Legal information

Monday                       2 – 5 pm

Tuesday                      6 – 8 pm

Wednesday                11 am – 2 pm

Friday                         10 am – 1 pm

Advocacy support

Tuesday                     11 am – 2 pm

Sexual harassment

Thursday                     5 – 8 pm

In addition to the helplines, we offer one-to-one appointments with our solicitors through our legal surgeries as well as free legal representation for a limited number of cases.

We also have an advocacy support service where we can support women by explaining legal processes, engaging with solicitors and support agencies (police, mental health, etc), providing advice on access to other support services, and filing complaints.
