2021 Sheffield Legal Walk
5.30pm, June 24, 2021
The Sheffield Legal Walk is a 10K sponsored walk that raises funds for free legal advice charities across Yorkshire. In 2019 the Legal Walks raised over £1M for advice services, but in 2020 the majority of walks had to be postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 Sheffield Legal Walk will return to the usual in-person format - government guidelines permitting across the UK. The Sheffield Legal Walk returns at a critical time for the UK’s specialist legal advice sector, which has been greatly impacted by the pandemic. Many advice services have reported an unprecedented surge in demand from clients in desperate need of advice in areas such as debt, welfare, immigration, family, housing and employment law. Other services are facing a lack of resource and staff to deal with the level of enquiries and severe financial problems that could lead to their permanent closure. We are encouraging as many teams as possible to take part in the Sheffield Legal Walk this year to help raise much needed funds and awareness for the free legal advice sector.
