Counselling & Legal Support

FIRE's core strength is its knowledge of law. At FIRE our specialised team of experts and volunteers supports any person or entity with legal counselling and redressal. We work with other partner NGOs and caregivers to report incidents of crime, including cybercrimes and assist the aggrieved party in reporting any criminal offences to investigation agencies/ forums. We also guide and advise the victims about their legal redressal rights and educate them about the legal process and related requirements. We advise law enforcement agencies on specific offences made out in a given factual scenario so that the relevant sections are noted at the time of registration of FIR and the process to seek electronic evidence during investigation.


FIRE has inhouse team of lawyers qualified to deliver legal advice and counselling support. FIRE works with government organisations such as the NCPCR, National Commission for Women or the National Legal service authority and various state legal service authorities to facilitate  victims access to justice through legal aid. We partner with other NGOs and helplines to offer legal support & counselling to victims. We also organise internet deaddiction sessions advised by psychologists and qualified experts.
