How to use:

You can search by region, by category, or by both together to find relevant services and groups.

Some organisations are listed under many regions, because they offer their services across a number of areas. You may therefore see organisations listed under regions which do not match their postal address, because they offer services to many areas regardless of where they are physically based. Some organisations are listed under several categories because they offer a number of different types of services.

Stonewall's list of gay friendly solicitors are listed under the category "Legal and Advice Services".

For more help to find legal advice in your area the Law Society has a database of solicitors all over the UK which you can search.
