On Tuesday 28 June, we will be joining with around 10,000 people to take part in the 2022 London Legal Walk.
We are walking to raise vital funds to enable us to continue delivering our free and low-cost money advice, housing, employment and immigration services, as well as our community legal advice clinics. Last year we helped over 6,500 people in our community to understand and defend their rights. You can see the difference this makes to people’s lives in our latest Impact Report.
Funding for Law Centres is currently extremely challenging and so any support you can give will make a big difference. You can sponsor us here.
Your help will ensure that more people like Jasmine get the financial support they’re entitled to and are better equipped to deal with the challenges of the cost of living crisis:
“I was working throughout the pandemic, but when the pandemic lifted I went down in a spiral and got into deep depression. It was so bad I couldn’t go to work, and I also had really bad back pain. I got behind on my rent and was sent a letter about rent arrears and then I received an eviction order. It made my situation so much worse. I think I was close to having a breakdown and I had suicidal thoughts. I was on universal credit so I only had a low income and I wasn’t getting any help.
“Things really picked up when I went to the Law Centre. I got so much help with my situation. I got a grant to help with my rent arrears and outstanding debts. They helped me get a reduction on my council tax and helped me fill out the PIP form too. There was also help with my heating bills and shopping for my food. They helped me deal with my outstanding debts and got in contact with my credit card company to put a freezing motion in place. Eventually the company agreed to write off the debt. “When I heard they’d written off the debt, it was like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I had literally been at rock bottom but this makes life a lot easier.”
