Coram Children's Legal Centre

FREE legal advice on family, child and education law across England.


Coram Children's Legal Centre, part of the Coram group of charities, specialises in law and policy affecting children and young people.


CCLC provides free legal information, advice and representation to children, young people, their families, carers and professionals, as well as international consultancy on child law and children's rights.


Since opening in 1981 as the major UK project for the International Year of the Child, the CLC has helped thousands of children, parents and carers. We are staffed by lawyers and professionals with experience in child law and funded by grants from central Government and charitable trusts.
