Brighton Legal Walk – Wednesday 11th September

The Brighton Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk along the picturesque coastline in order to raise vital funds for the provision of free legal advice in Brighton. 100% of the funds raised go directly to BHT Sussex, Citizens Advice Brighton & Hove, Possability People and Money Advice Plus.

You will be walking shoulder to shoulder with fellow members of the Brighton legal community. Law firms, barristers chambers, advice agencies, in house legal departments, and university law groups will walk the breath-taking coastal route in unison, before enjoying a refreshing drinks reception provided by LLST.

Demand for legal advice services has risen dramatically over the past year. The rising cost of living has heaped immense pressure on legal advice agencies who are struggling to cope with such unprecedented demand. We believe everybody should be able to receive legal advice when they need it most. By joining the Brighton Legal Walk, you can help to ensure the people of your community have fair access to justice, and the beneficiary agencies can keep the lights on and the doors open for the people who need them most.

The walk begins at 5pm from Brighton Magistrates Court (BN2 0LG) and ends at the Citizens Advice Brighton & Hove office.

Why We Walk

The important thing is that we raise as much as possible for the advice agencies who are struggling to maintain services with the increased challenges created by the rising cost of living.

The number of people seeking help with Debt, Benefits, Homelessness and Employment has increased dramatically over the last year. Now more than ever it’s crucial to support the free legal advice agencies on the frontline.

Taking part in the Brighton Legal Walk raises vital funds for local advice agencies BHT Sussex, Citizens Advice Brighton & Hove, Possability People and Money Advice Plus.
