Access to Justice Foundation Project
AdviceUK has been given a grant from The Access to Justice Foundation to support collaboration and partnerships between community advice services and pro-bono advice schemes involving solicitors and barristers.
What are we doing?
We are working with advice organisations and advice networks across England until the end of 2012. If you are interested in developing pro bono advice services, please get in touch. We have also put together a briefing that deals with the issues involved in setting up a pro bono advice service (including insurance and regulation) - you can download it at the bottom of this page.

Did you know that clients with pro bono representation who go on to win their case may be able to raise money to fund free legal advice, at no extra cost to themselves? See the Access to Justice Foundation website and this leaflet for further information.
