Great Legal Bake - 20th-24th February 2017
Advice charities support some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our society; enabling them to understand their legal issues, access their rights and giving them the ability to regain control of their lives.
Following the recession, many working families’ household incomes have decreased, making paid-for legal advice unattainable. As the number of people desperately in need of free legal help rises, funding for free advice services is being continuously cut.
The lack of funding has meant some organisations have had to merge, stretching tight resources even further. Many have ceased to provide services altogether, leaving whole communities with almost no access to advice if they are unable to afford legal fees. With your help, we can change that.
The North West Legal Support Trust (NWLST) was established to raise money to support the free legal advice sector. We award grants to charities to ensure vulnerable people can access the help and support they need.
Join NWLST for the Great Legal Bake during the week of Monday 20th – Friday 24th February and raise funds which protect access to advice for those who have nowhere else to turn.
