The next deadline for applications to the Law Society Charity grants programme is the 1st December 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 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.
