Shelter Cornwall (Truro)

At Shelter’s centre in Truro we provide free, expert housing advice for people living in Cornwall.

Our housing solicitors are able to help anyone eligible for legal aid with free, confidential advice and representation on possession, repairs, illegal eviction, housing applications and antisocial behaviour injunctions

Shelter’s Cornwall service attend all possession days at Truro and Bodmin County Courts, and can advise anyone whose case is listed on these days. If you are not eligible for legal aid, we can offer help by telephone from our Plymouth branch.
