Other Legal Issues

Wiltshire Law Centre currently advises only in relation to Housing matters. We are actively seeking funding to begin advising in other areas, as we recognise the great needs of our communities. We will keep you informed when we are able to offer these additional services. 

Benefits

If you require assistance with your benefits claim, we first recommend confirming that you are receiving all the benefits to which you are entitled, using the benefits calculator on the Turn2Us website at:
