Personal Support Unit (PSU)

The PSU is an independent charity. We support people going through the court process without legal representation

Our aim is to help you to manage your case for yourself.

We have more than 500 trained and experienced volunteers, including post-graduate students training to be barristers or solicitors.

Our service is free, independent and confidential and the service is offered equally to everyone who asks.

Volunteers provide free support in the civil and family courts and some tribunals, with issues such as contact with children, divorce, eviction and money claims.

PSU volunteers can……
•listen to you, and provide information and support
•help you find out if you can get free legal advice
•discuss settling issues without going to court
•explain how the court works
•help you fill in court forms and organise court papers
•help you to plan what you want to say in court
•go into court with you, take notes and help afterwards
•provide details of other specialist agencies

Please note that we cannot give legal advice
