The coronavirus outbreak has affected all of us – but it is the most marginalised groups who are facing the worst effects.

Many people are facing life-altering issues with housing, employment, benefits, debt, and more.  

Under these conditions, advice agencies have been working harder than ever to support the demand. However, years of funding cuts have left many operating on shoestring budgets, without the reserves to meet the extra demand.  

London Legal Support Trust is asking for your support. Not being able to hold our regular fundraising events has meant a shortfall in 2020, just as the agencies we fund are facing a huge surge in need. 

Please donate now, to help frontline free legal advice agencies to the continue continue their life-changing work.
