The Billing Project is an initiative funded by the Legal Education Foundation (LEF) and the London Legal Support Trust (LLST), to aid and support the free legal advice sector with their billing needs.
The first pilot involved funding the position of one Billing Coordinator in an advice centre. Within a year, the role had become self-sustaining.
Now in it’s second phase, the Billing Project is being expanded to include several Billing Coordinators. These coordinators are shared between some London advice agencies, and will work to implement improved billing procedures. Improved billing will enable the advice agencies to secure cashflow and increase income.
