Receiving legal help can make an enourmous difference to people's lives, helping to reduce debt, poverty and suffering. The Access To Justice Foundation supports those who need legal help but cannot afford it, raising funds from the profession and distributing them to legal advice charities, directly assisting the most vulnerable.
The Foundation also works with a network of Legal Support Trusts across England and Wales. The Trusts support the provision of free legal help through law centres, advice agencies and citizens' advice bureaux by providing them with funding and other support.
In order to provide these essential services, the Foundation relies on the support of the legal profession. There are various ways in which you or your firm could help, through donations, provision of pro bono services, and by donating unclaimed client account balances to the Foundation.
