Following cuts to legal aid, there has been a huge rise in the need for funding from LLST. This scheme aims to be strategic in the distribution of funds, as well as formalising and improving upon the support LLST can offer organisations.
The aim is to provide a core grounding for the best free specialist legal advice agencies in London, to help them become stable and remain viable in this particularly difficult climate. We want to help these brilliant organisations go beyond constant fire-fighting, and be able to focus on the work they do best – helping people with their legal problems.
The scheme reflects LLST’s culture of wanting to fund organisations that have a progressive attitude, are client centred, and want to continuously improve what they do.
