Our process starts with a confidential conversation to learn more about you and what you need.
More than money.
We’re best known for offering financial support, but this is not the only thing we do. We know from long experience that solicitors in need or crisis often have multiple worries, unique to each person.
We want to have a tailored conversation with you, to help assess your needs and how we can best offer you support.
Start your enquiry.
Fill out the enquiry form in confidence send us an email or call us on 020 8675 6440 to speak to a member of our Casework team. Our core hours are 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.
After our conversation, you may be referred straightaway for support (eg. for money management or welfare benefits advice). We can also signpost you to specialist organisations. If we believe you are eligible for financial support, we will ask you to complete the next stage of our process, which is to make a full application.
