When RLAS is open and closed
Coronavirus (COVID-19 pandemic) - suspension of advice sessions
To lessen the risk of infection for our clients and volunteers, RLAS has decided to suspend its weekly Tuesday evening advice sessions from Tuesday 17 March 2020 until at least the end of April 2020.
Please check our website from time-to-time for when RLAS might be able to resume the advice sessions.

RLAS is open between 8pm and 9.30pm every Tuesday in Richmond (except as noted below closed).

Should I arrive before 8pm?
You can arrive before 8pm. However you should be aware of the following:
- You may have to wait outside Holy Trinity Church until 8pm. RLAS only rents rooms at Holy Trinity Church. There are are rarely staff/members of the Church or RLAS volunteers present before 8pm. If they are not, then the building will be closed until a RLAS volunteer arrives.
- Even if you do arrive before 8pm, you will not normally be seen before 8pm
Do I need to make an appointment?
No. RLAS does not have an appointment system. RLAS runs a drop-in style clinic. Clients are normally (but not always) seen in order of arrival. You should expect to wait 30 minutes to 45 minutes (depending on when you arrive and the number of clients that come on a particular Tuesday).
Although RLAS is running an advice session, will I be seen?

When RLAS might not open
Holy Trinity Church does not belong to RLAS. On occasion these premises are closed, or the rooms that they make available to RLAS are used for other purposes. RLAS may only receive notice shortly before. On these occasions, RLAS may not be able to run a session on a particular evening.
Unfortunately, RLAS are unable to notify clients, other than via this web site.
Dates when RLAS will be closed
RLAS will not be open on 22 and 29 December 2020
