Open Grants Rounds

Grants support the provision of legal advice and representation

2022 Spring Grants Round

The 2022 Spring Grants Round aims to support pro bono provision throughout the UK, at a regional and/or local level.

Pro bono is the work of lawyers who volunteer their services for free to people and organisations who couldn’t otherwise afford legal advice.

This grants round is now closed, but please do check this page regularly for updates about future grants rounds.


Help us make future grants at no extra cost:

Please remind your pro bono colleagues to apply for a Pro Bono Costs Order.

Pro Bono Costs Orders are just like ordinary costs orders, they can be applied for in civil proceedings where the successful party has benefited from free legal advice or representation, whether for all or part of their case. The Access to Justice Foundation is the designated charity to receive Pro Bono Costs Orders. Income received from Pro Bono Costs Orders supports our grant making activity.
