About Us

Ealing Advice Service (EAS) provides generalist advice for residents of the London Borough of Ealing.

Our service provides free, high quality advice and assistance in social welfare law across a range of areas including welfare benefits, landlord & tenant, homelessness, debt, employment, family and immigration.

We also run a telephone advice line where our volunteers are able to give you preliminary advice and signpost you to organisations which will be better equipped to deal with any problems you have.

Volunteer advisers are available to give preliminary advice on a range of issues.
Our number is 0208 579 8429, (option 1) or 03000 125464. Our advice line is open from 10 AM to 4 PM, Monday to Friday with the exception of Bank Holidays and the period between Christmas day and New Year’s day.

We can also provide specialist assistance to court or tribunal level in welfare benefits, employment, and housing matters.

We offer face-to-face services at various outreach community venues around the Borough of Ealing.  Access to appointments is prioritised for queries involving one or more of the following factors: 

  • – client vulnerability
  • – seriousness of the issues
  • – the possibility of achieving a positive outcome.

In all cases we expect clients to take an active role to resolve their issues.

Our drop-in service for quick queries is currently closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Ealing Advice Service is funded by the London Borough of Ealing, but is entirely independent.  

This service is a consortium of charities working in partnership to deliver advice, guidance and information. The current partners are:

  • – Ealing Mencap (Lead Partner and Data Controller)
  • – Age UK Ealing
  • – Nucleus Legal Advice Centre
  • – Deaf Plus
  • – MIND Ealing, Hounslow, Hammersmith and Fulham
  • – PESTS
  • – Family Action
  • – Havelock Family Centre
  • – Contact (supporting partner)

EAS is not a legal entity and does not have a legal structure, however, it is administered by Ealing Mencap, and as lead partner it is the data owner and acts as overall data controller. Moreover, along with the guidance of the steering group, it establishes the procedures, systems and umbrella policies to ensure the service and employees delivering the service adhere to the 2018 Data Protection Act.

For further information on our data protection practice and procedure please refer to EAS Client Privacy notice.

We are always looking to improve the service we provide. If you have any comments or questions about the service, please contact our manager to manager@ealingadvice.org.
