Community legal advice service

Ealing Advice Service

A new service is operating in Ealing to deliver advice to all residents of the borough. The Ealing Advice Service is a consortium of 10 local charities led by Ealing Mencap, working in partnership with Age UK Ealing, The Centre for Armenian Information and Advice (delivering the Ealing Advice Forum), DeafPlus, Ealing Centre for Independent Living, Family Action, Havelock Family Centre, MIND Ealing and Hounslow, Nucleus and PESTS.

The Ealing Advice Service will use a 'one-stop-shop' approach to prevent clients from being passed between different advice agencies, and to ensure they get advice that is timely, accessible and provided by staff who understand their needs and situation. It will assist with any questions you have relating to:

  • Welfare benefits
  • Housing
  • Debt
  • Travel concessions
  • Immigration
  • Consumer advice
  • Employment
  • Education
  • Mental health
  • Community/social care
  • Disability and sensory impairment related issues
  • Family matters
  • Children with additional needs
  • Carers issues
