Law Centres provide an independent legal advice and representation service. They employ solicitors and specialists in areas of ‘social welfare’ law to help individuals and communities.
Law Centres focus on providing legal services to people who may be marginalised in society or who are experiencing discrimination.

Tommy Monoghan Bereavement Support Service
The Vauxhall Law Centre Tommy Monoghan Bereavement Support Service was set up in memory of a late Board member who was one of the longest standing local community supporters.
The support service aims to help those who have suffered from a bereavement and need advice in regards to their benefits, debt and funeral payments. Vauxhall Law Centre is able to help families and individuals with assessing any benefit entitlements or any debt issues arising from a bereavement. This service will also help with establishing whether there could be any charitable contributions or grants that may be applicable to them as well as give general advice and guidance. Alongside the advice service, VLC have also produced a comprehensive information pack which you can find here
The information pack covers:
• What to do in the Event of a Death
• Money and Finances
• Bereavement Advice
• Legal Support
We encourage you to share this pack to anyone who needs help or to contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
