The advice sector faces a £15-£20 million shortfall when trying to meet the immediate new demand.

Over 40,000 people who are most impacted by the cost of living crisis will potentially go without the advice and assistance they need.

Organisations are seeing an increase in demand by as much as 48% and in some cases much more.

Give Access to Justice

These figures are based on conversations with Community Justice Fund grantees and are meant to give a broad indication of the issues faced by advice services at the frontline. You can find more information here.

How can you be part of the picture?

The problem is urgent. If the funding gap is not closed, unmet demand will continue to increase while tens of thousands of people remain unable to access the services they need.

We work to increase the resources available for the provision of free legal advice across the UK and make grants which support marginalised communities protect their fundamental rights and live fulfilling lives.

If a civil case is won with pro bono help, pro bono costs can be ordered by the court/tribunal, or included in settlements. Costs are payable to the Access to Justice Foundation.
