Having identified that there was a gap in legal services accessible to young people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, we were delighted to be awarded funding by the Big Lottery for this 3 year project in 2016.  

Street Legal is an innovative partnership between Clan Childlaw and Rock Trust. Combining the expertise of both organisations, the project provides free legal advice and representation to young people aged 16 - 25 who are either experiencing, or at risk of homelessness in Edinburgh. 

The project also provides specialist training, support and guidance to support workers on the legal rights of young people within the housing system, to assist them in empowering and advocating for the young people they work with.
