The London Legal Walk
Two-thirds of the UK population do not know how to get legal advice and 14 million people who live in poverty cannot afford to pay for it. In light of the long-term challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic and reduced funding in the charity sector, legal advice agencies are doing all they can to meet rising need despite a drastically restricted income.
The London Legal Walk is organised by the London Legal Support Trust and raises vital funds to ensure access to justice for some of our communities’ most poor and vulnerable people.
The event supports over 100 legal advice agencies in London and the South East. We know that these agencies do a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, fighting discrimination and exploitation.
