Legal services

Legal complications can be stressful, confusing, and financially draining. With Community, members have access to expert employment lawyers, free of charge. And your family is covered too. Our support extends to personal legal services too – where we can offer you great discounts from trusted partners.

Using our legal services

There are many circumstances in which you may need legal support at work and in your personal life; from dispute resolution to personal injury or housing issues.
Our expert advisors have years of experience in understanding employment law, and may be able to give you all the answers you need – just by calling our Service Centre on 0800 389 6332.

If your situation is more complicated or you need personal legal services, you can use our Union Lawyers platform; an online facility which signposts members to our recommended solicitors for your area.*

*Please note that personal legal services are NOT available on the Isle of Man or Channel Islands. 

Services included with your Community membership

Personal Injury

If you’ve had an accident, been assaulted, believe you have been the victim of medical negligence, or suffer from an industrial disease, you may be entitled to compensation. Our recommended lawyers can help you to pursue your case, and 100% of any compensation goes to you.

Will writing

It’s something that many of us never get round to – but it’s important. Our recommended legal partners offer a basic will writing service free of charge, to make sure that your wishes are adhered to should the worst happen.

General legal questions

Our legal advice service can also help with any general legal enquiries that you have. We find that our members often seek advice on landlord & tenant issues, welfare benefits and neighbour disputes

Discounted services

Divorce and family

Upsetting as relationship breakdowns are, there is likely to come a point where you need legal support. Community’s recommended solicitors are ready to help you with any issues regarding divorce or family matters.


Buying and selling your house is always expensive. Community can help you to save money with discounted solicitor’s fees for conveyancing.


To find out more, or to ask us a legal question, you can call the Service Centre on 0800 389 6332, alternatively if you have a personal injury claim or need personal legal services visit Union Lawyers.

All of Community’s benefits and services, including Union Lawyers, are only available to paying members of the union.
