The below is for information purposes. Should you wish to sign up to take part in your own 10,000 Steps for Justice challenge please email [email protected].
10,000 Steps for Justice is a virtual event, giving you and your team the flexibility to take part in the comfort of your living room, in a local park or on your lunch break.
In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, there will be a significant rise in Emergency Funding applications from advice agencies as they deal with the ongoing situation. Fundraising for free legal advice services is, therefore, more critical than ever if agencies are to continue doing such a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, and fighting discrimination and exploitation.
10,000 steps for justice will be a great opportunity to engage your family and colleagues in this vital cause, wherever you are working from. But we also hope that it will re-ignite a strong sense of community across the legal sector as the country continues to go through this difficult period of isolation.

How to Get Involved
To make this happen, we are asking you to share your every step of the way on social media using #10kstepsforjustice – whether it’s a photo of you in your living room/garden, a screenshot of your step count or even a video of your four-legged friend taking part with you in a park, we want to hear from you.
*We will keep updating this page with the latest advice from the Government and public bodies regarding social distancing measures for England in June, to ensure the safety of walkers participating in 10,000 Steps for Justice.
As per the current government guidelines in place from 31st May, people in England are able to leave their homes to meet in groups of up to 6 people outside whilst maintaining social distancing. Individuals must ensure that a distance of at least 2 metres is kept between them and anyone from another household.
If you are completing 10,000 Steps for Justice in the rest of the UK or abroad, please adhere to social distancing measures specific to your local area.
