Go the Extra Mile for Justice 2021

Why we need your help

We need your help to raise vital funds for free legal advice charities who support vulnerable people throughout the UK with our fun, virtual fundraising challenge: Go the Extra Mile for Justice 

During 2021, we’re asking as many of you as possible to take up your own sponsored fundraising challenge to raise £10 per mile for free legal advice services in your region

It doesn’t matter if you are running, skipping, cycling, walking, or even hopping dressed as a kangaroo, sign up today! 

Last year, hundreds of our supporters from across the nation took part and collectively completed 21,366 miles in the name of access to justice, raising over £40,000 for frontline free legal advice services. 

"We completed 11,447.22 miles altogether across the 8 week challenge we set, with 79 students and staff from our school involved. We are delighted to contribute this to Go the Extra Mile for Justice campaign and the funds we have been able to raise alongside. It has been a wonderful challenge for us to take part in. It has really brought the school closer together as a community. "

 CASE STUDY

*Matthew is an unemployed single parent with mental health problems and five dependent children. He got into rent arrears and his landlord was threatening to evict them. All because of a housing benefit overpayment, which was now being deducted from his current housing benefit payments. Matthew was not coping since the death of his partner and mother of their five children.

Luckily, the Legal Support Trusts were there to fund specialist legal advice and representation services where Matthew lives. With the support of these services, the Council wrote-off the overpayment and cleared all of his rent arrears so that housing benefit was now paying all of his rent. Consequently, Matthew and his five dependent children did not become homeless. By supporting free legal advice centres, you will help people like Matthew and his family get the help and representation they desperately need.
