The Pritt Fund
In these difficult times Liverpool Law Society wishes to remind solicitors and their families of the existence of the Pritt Fund as well as the SBA which may be able to offer help through financial support.
The Pritt Fund is a charity created in 1919 which is connected with Liverpool Law Society. It is able to offer modest help to solicitors and their families who are suffering financial hardship in the area as laid down by the Fund (the City of Liverpool, the Metropolitan Boroughs of Wirral, Knowsley, and Sefton, Widnes, and Neston in the County of Cheshire).
The SBA (aka Solicitors Benevolent Association) is a national charity which is also able to offer financial support. A link to their specialist webpage is available here- https://www.sba.org.uk/covid-19/
In addition there is Lawcare a national charity aimed at helping the mental health and wellbeing of legal practitioners. A link to their website is available here- https://www.lawcare.org.uk/
