Greenwich Housing Rights
Free and independent legal advice for tenants and homeowners on a wide range of housing issues. We assist those facing possession or eviction processes, those who are homeless or in unsuitable or unsafe housing, those wishing to be rehoused, those with problems with their housing benefit claim and with many other housing and related problems. All advice is confidential.

- Referral Details
Members of the public seeking advice should visit one of our drop-in sessions, call during one of our telephone advice sessions or email us for initial advice. If we can provide ongoing assistance an appointment will be made with a caseworker.
Organisations seeking to refer clients to us should email firstname.lastname@example.org. We provide an ex-directory number to partner organisations and public sector teams to facilitate referrals and enable us to provide second-tier advice. We do not have a specific referral protocol or form and encourage other professionals to contact us so that we can discuss the nature of the client's problem and our capacity to take on new cases.
