Limited casework capacity

Casework has to be limited to those clients who are very vulnerable and unable to advocate for themselves. 

Whether or not BRQ can represent a client is also determined by whether their case has merit and the limitations of BRQ's capacity.

The service cannot assist with criminal matters, child support matters or filling out forms.
