The local legal community and supporters of access to justice will be putting their trainers on to walk 5K on 27 September for the Liverpool Legal Walk. And we'll be there to join them!
The event raises money for the Access to Justice Foundation North West. The Foundation supports communities excluded from accessing justice by increasing the availability of vital free legal advice through grant-making to the local charities that provide it.
These communities often experience multiple disadvantages and are in crisis, requiring many kinds of support. The Access to Justice Foundation uses specialist expertise to work strategically across the UK to target and divert funds to those most in need and at risk.
This means thousands of people across the country are diverted from crisis and keep a roof over their heads, remain in paid employment, avoid mental health crises, and experience positive life changes. These fund interventions really improve people's lives:
- Prevents families being made homeless
- Prevents destitution
- Allows older people to gain the support to which they are entitled
- Supports women and children who have been trafficked for domestic servitude or prostitution.
The money raised will allow the Access to Justice Foundation to continue supporting free legal advice charities to survive, thrive and continue improving lives.
When and where is the walk?
Walkers will arrive from 5:30 pm and the walk starts at 6:00 pm. The walk will start at The Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts, Derby Square, Liverpool L2 1XA. The end venue is yet to be confirmed.
