Who we are

West London Equality Centre (WLEC) formerly Ealing Equality Council, is a charity and has been active in the promotion and advancement of equality and human rights for all. We’ve been providing advice and advocacy in both generalist and specialist areas in conjunction with the Community Advice Programme (CAP) and retain the pro-bono services of both solicitors and qualified barristers to provide free legal advice.  Read more…

WLEC was formed initially in 1963 with the main aim to deliver advice and has helped disadvantaged communities in West London for over 50 years. We have a team of trained volunteers drawn from a wide range of expertise and legal backgrounds, plus a team of staff able to deal with all manners of enquiries. We have access to QCs, barristers, judges, and solicitors who give their time freely to those we are trying to assist, with the aim of improving the lives of the people we live with and making everyone more able to resolve their issues. Our staff were all volunteers once, and all have lived experience of racism, exclusion, deprivation or disability. 

Summary of Objects
