The next deadline for applications to the Law Society Charity grants programme is the 1st September 2017.
The Charity provides grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 to voluntary sector organisations whose work is related to the law and the legal profession for projects that:
- Promote human rights
- Provide access to justice
- Provide legal education.
Priority is particularly given to projects that promote the needs of excluded, under-represented or disadvantaged groups and minorities.
Organisations supported in the past include:
- Youth Net which received funding towards the development of information to young people via alternative communication tools.
- The Legal Action Group (LAG) which received funding towards the development of LAG’s monthly magazine Legal Action.
