1. Nasc Free Legal Service

Nasc operates a free walk-in service providing legal advice and information on a range of immigration and asylum-related issues at our office on Ferry Lane, Cork. For a map and directions, click here.

Following a consultation through the walk-in service, you may be referred for an appointment with one of our specialist legal officers if our team identifies that you have a particularly complex case that we can assist with.

Nasc is a registered charity and we rely on private donations. We greatly appreciate all donations to help us keep our free legal service open. We recommend donations of between €10 and €50 when you visit the legal service if you can afford to do so. This donation will contribute to the cost of making an application on behalf of a client e.g. printing, utilities, rent etc. If you would like to know how you can support us, please click here. If you can afford to give more, we would be very grateful for a bigger donation. Your donations help keep our clinics open.

Our legal service is private, confidential and non-judgmental.

2. When is the Walk-in Clinic open?

PLEASE NOTE – Our Walk In Hours have recently changed.  From Friday 3rd March 2017, our Walk In and Legal Service will be closed all day on Fridays.  Unfortunately this closure is necessary because of a reduction in our funding, coupled with the high level of casework that we currently have on hand. This reduction in service will enable the Nasc team to continue to deliver our high quality service and to continue to submit high-quality applications across a range of immigration and protection related issues.

Important Information about our Walk In Service:

  • Please note the service operates on a strict first-come, first-served basis. Only the FIRST FIVE PEOPLE will be seen at each Walk In session, so we recommend arriving early – our doors open at 9:30am in the morning or at 2pm after lunch, depending on the day.
  • When you arrive, please let the receptionist know that you would like to attend walk-in. The receptionist will then take your name and add it to the list.
  • Take a seat in our waiting area. Please note that if you do bring your children with you, you or another responsible adult will need to stay with them at all times.
