We are delighted to be able to support RedLaw Recruitment on Monday 17th June where the RedLaw team will be joining thousands of other professionals from the legal sector walking 10km through the streets of London to raise money for the London Legal Support Trust.
This year they are raising their game – the ‘fabulous three’, Matt, Theo and Hannah from RedLaw’s Associate team, will be RUNNING the 10km course which takes them alongside Buckingham Palace.

About The London Legal Support Trust
Access to justice should be equally available to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. This principle is at the cornerstone of the legal justice system in England and Wales. In practice, it is not the case.
Advice Agencies and Citizens Advice Bureaux work very hard to try to ensure that vulnerable people do have a way of accessing justice through a mixture of “Legal Aid” (publicly-funded work), funding from local authorities, charitable donations, and by using pro bono volunteers.
Receiving the legal advice, they need makes a huge difference to these people’s lives, reducing debt, poverty and homelessness, and combatting discrimination and injustice.
The London Legal Support Trust works to support law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the South East by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support. They do this by holding large fundraising events, most notably the London Legal Walk, and then delivering the funds raised to the agencies where they are most needed through grant rounds. They offer their knowledge and experience of the sector to help the agencies to become more sustainable and help to partner them with law firms and chambers who want to help them ensure that the law is fair.
They are part of a network of seven Legal Support Trusts across England and in Wales working with the Access to Justice Foundation to support pro bono and advice agencies, ensuring funds can be distributed where needed most throughout England and Wales. To visit their website, please click here.
