Funding for the Provision of Free Legal Advice – 19th October 2018 (North West)

Not for profit organisations in the North West of England have until the 19th October 2018 to apply to the North West Legal Support Trust for grants of up to £4,000 for the provision of free legal advice to members of the public who would otherwise be disadvantaged.

Applications for funding should meet the following key criteria:

  • Support or enable the provision of free legal advice or advice in a legal context
  • Focus on the most vulnerable people, and in particular families and individuals living in poverty.
  • Demonstrate effective use of resources
  • Demonstrate sustainability through effective use of existing and future resources.

Projects are required to demonstrate how legal advice provision is supervised by or overseen by a legally qualified practitioner: whether employed or associated with the project.

Given the current environment and major reductions in advice delivery support, the Trustees are giving priority to projects that increase the provision of legal advice.  However, it will give consideration to other projects, within the Trust aims and objectives, that promote Access to Justice.  Applications in this area must demonstrate, and describe examples of, qualitative and quantitative results.
