Hackney Community Law Centre is a charity (registered charity number is: 1016171). That means that we do not make any profits or bonuses from the work that we do. All of the money donated to Hackney Community Law Centre is used only to help the many people who come to us for help and advice. In the last year, primarily due to social and economic factors relating to the economic downturn, HCLC’s caseload increased by around 40 per cent, as over 3,000 people used our services. Without your help and financial support, Hackney Community Law Centre would not be able to provide the services that it does.
