Legal advice service

The Together for Short Lives legal advice service matches families with legally trained experts who act on their behalf, assisting families with specific problems they may be facing.

Working in partnership with Law Works, this service can help families access support they are entitled to whether that be housing adaptations or having the right care package in place. Watch our film to find out more about the service and how it helped one family.

It’s made a tremendous difference

How can I access the legal advice service?

Call our Helpline on 0808 8088 100 to speak to someone about our legal advice service. Our helpline staff will refer appropriate cases for one-to-one support from a legally trained expert.

Our Helpline works on a call-back basis and is open from 10am until 4pm, Monday-Friday.  Outside of these hours and on Bank Holidays, you can still leave a message on our answerphone and we will return your call as soon as we can when the helpline re-opens. Calls are free for callers from a landline as well as specified mobile networks.

Alternatively, you can email us at any time on with your query and someone will respond as soon as possible. Any information you provide will remain confidential. Please make sure you provide a valid email or phone number so we can get back to you.

Our legal advice service is generously supported by the Masonic Charitable Foundation and The Goldsmiths’ Company Charity.
