The Legal Walk Tunbridge Wells 2021 (aka The £10K 10K)

"We're overwhelmed by the support of the team at Law 365 - not only are they hosting the start of this year's Tunbridge Wells Legal Walk but they've exceeded their target of £5,000 to support our work!”  

Liz de Villiers CEO Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District  

This is Law 365’s third year participating the 10K Legal Walk challenge organised by the London Legal Support Trust. We're delighted to have raised thousands over the years to support the vital work of the Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored Team Law 365. 

What is the London Legal Support Trust? 

London Legal Support Trust (LLST) offers support to a wide range of not-for-profit advice and legal services, providing access to frontline free legal advice charities. There are lots of ways you can show your support to ensure that everyone has fair access to justice.  

There is a legal aid crisis. Between 2005 and 2018, 56% of all legal aid providers were lost, and the proportion of not-for-profit providers fell by a staggering 64% over the same period. 

Of course, no year can compare to the last year, and unsurprisingly there has been a huge surge in demand for support since last March - particularly regarding benefits claims, employment issues and family relationships. There have also been more young people needing help.  Citizens Advice is currently preparing for a “tsunami of need” -- such as the threat of eviction and unmanageable debt -- now that the measures put in place to support people are being phased out.

How your donations help Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District 

Citizens Advice Tunbridge Wells & District is an independent charity, affiliated to but not part of the national Citizens Advice charity. They have to raise every penny they spend.   

Law 365 and other local law firms support the agency by walking the Tunbridge Wells Legal Walk and by giving pro bono advice to those who seek their help. 

Funding for free, impartial, confidential advice has never been so crucial. Despite moving to a remote service since the start of the pandemic, our volunteers and paid staff have gone out of their way to make sure that people get the advice and support they need, despite often challenging circumstances.   

Here is some feedback from Citizens Advice clients:  

"[My husband] had his first night's sleep in years last night. I don't know how to thank you enough." 

"You are an absolute legend - it feels so good to have someone on my side." 

Where your money will go? 

To meet the increase in demand, Citizens Advice urgently needs funding to train and mentor new volunteers. All funding raised from the 2021 Walk will be put towards building the advice team. 

It’s not too late to sponsor Team Law 365 https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Law365TunbridgeWellsLegalWalk2021
