The law firm Russell-Cooke works with Lewisham Local to provide a free telephone helpline for Lewisham Local members. The helpline allows members to have a short telephone conversation with a legal professional on issues relating to running a charity, such as:

  • Governance
  • Contracting and collaboration
  • Fundraising
  • Mergers
  • Employment / HR
  • Data Protection
  • Safeguarding
  • Leases and Property
  • Legal Structures and charitable status

The helpline is open from 09.30 to 17.00 on working days. To use the helpline, you can:

In the first instance, your enquiry will be dealt with by an executive assistant, who will circulate it to solicitors in Russell-Cooke’s Charity and Social Business team. You will then be contacted directly by a solicitor to discuss your enquiry, usually within 1 – 3 working days.

Please note that the helpline does not extend to Russell-Cooke considering, drafting or amending documents, or providing email/written advice. The helpline provides general assistance only; it does not provide specific legal advice and should not be relied upon as a substitute for formal legal advice.
