St Pauls Advice Centre


St Pauls Advice Centre has been a community resource at the heart of St Pauls since 1972.

Our vision is for a thriving community where people feel secure knowing they have a good standard of life built on equality and justice.

Our mission is to fight poverty and inequality in our community by providing professional advice and equipping people with knowledge and skills so they can access their rights and fulfil their responsibilities.

Our charitable aims are to relieve poverty by providing and promoting the provision of free legal advice, assistance and other legal services which would not otherwise be available due to lack of means.

The Values of St Pauls Advice Centre are

Client Focus - We take time to listen and understand our clients’ stories. Our advice and support helps people solve urgent challenges. We help clients develop their skills and knowledge so that they’re equipped to solve their own problems.

Justice - We champion the legal rights of individuals. We pursue fair and just outcomes for them. We challenge discrimination and disadvantage,and tackle systemic inequality.

Community - We listen to and prioritise the needs of the communities we serve, ensuring good accessibility and availability of services. We work with partners that share our vision and make change happen for the community.

Integrity - We behave honestly, ethically and openly with clients, colleagues and partners. We are consistent in our actions, principles, expectations and outcomes.

Expertise - We are professional, organised and competent. We adapt to changes in policy and the law, keeping our advice and support as helpful as possible. We value and support our experienced and skillful team.

Respect - We treat people kindly, fairly and consistently. We focus on giving the right advice rather than judging the people who need it. We aim to treat everyone equally whilst valuing diversity and respecting people’s differences. Where possible, we adapt our services to take account of different needs.
