Our volunteers and contributors are a hugely important and valued part of our team and we appreciate all of the support we receive.

Current Vacancies


Our volunteers are a hugely important and valued part of our team. They’re all qualified solicitors who give their time and expertise to help us answer emails and reach many more people.

We’re Always Looking For New Volunteer Solicitors

If you’re a qualified Scots Law solicitor and would like to support us, why not consider becoming a volunteer solicitor for the Centre? Our volunteer solicitors help us hugely by answering email enquiries the public send us, and you can choose your level of commitment to the Centre.

All our volunteer solicitors are experienced in child and family law, or in other areas of law that impact children, for example, immigration, mental health, criminal law or disability/equality law. If you’re curious about volunteering, you can try it out without any obligation to continue. We understand you’re busy so if there comes a point where you can no longer volunteer with us, you can stop, or take a break.

Fundraise For SCLC

Bake Sale

Ask your colleagues, friends or family to bake their favourite cakes/treats, bring them to the office and ask for donations. To add extra fun, you could make it a competition and ask everyone to mark each cake out of 10.

Sponsored Run

If you’re into fitness, you could do a 5K, 10K, half marathon or a full-length marathon to raise money. In the past, some of our solicitors and volunteers took part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival and raised over £870 between them. If you’re entering a race to raise money on our behalf, we’ll pay the race registration fee. 

Legal Walk

If walking is more your thing, you could form a team and take part in one of the Legal Walks that the Access to Justice Foundation organise every year.
