Legal support (Personal Support Unit)

The Personal Support Unit is a charity for people facing court alone.  The PSU is a charity where volunteers provide free support in the civil and family courts and some tribunals, with issues such as contact with children, divorce, eviction and money claims.

PSU volunteers can…

  • Listen to you, and provide information and support
  • Help you find out if you can get free legal advice
  • Discuss settling issues without going to court
  • Explain how the court works
  • Help you fill in court forms and organise court papers
  • Help you to plan what you want to say in court
  • Go into court with you, take notes and help afterwards
  • Provide details of other specialist agencies

Please note that PSU cannot give you legal advice.
