Role

Clan Childlaw is a unique legal and advocacy service for children and young people. We believe the law needs to work better for children and young people.

Clan Childlaw has been granted funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to use the law to help young people and families with children affected by homelessness in Edinburgh to realise their rights to housing and support, and to challenge decision makers when they do not meet their legal duty towards young people and families.

Street Legal works in partnership with Shelter Scottish Housing Law Service to provide legal advice and representation to young people aged up to 25 years and families with children under the age of 18 years who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Through the project, we also deliver lawyer-led training workshops on housing and homelessness law to frontline practitioners in Edinburgh who work with and provide support to young people and families affected by homelessness.
