Our vision is a society where everyone has access to justice

We increase available resources for the provision of free legal advice and support across the UK

We develop and implement grant making programmes which align with our values, improve reach and maximise impact

We improve understanding and awareness of the role of the law as a tool for social justice

The organisations we support work tirelessly to help the most vulnerable in society, including:

2/3 of the UK population
do not know how to get legal advice

14 million people live in poverty and can’t afford access to justice

The annual legal aid budget, in real terms, is £950m less than it was in 2010

 Up to a million people live in areas with no legal aid provision for housing
