Many of the advice agencies we support are run on such tight budgets that any “administration”, such as the time and staffing needed for raising money, is not funded, and so unless these agencies have volunteers who are skilled in this area fundraising must either detract from other work or not be carried out. The London Legal Support Trust provides a mechanism through which fundraising can occur. The Trust is entirely self-funding and so does not take away from any funding pools that exist for legal advice providers; any work it does and money it raises benefit only the wider community.
