My story

[p]Thank you for visiting our team's fundraising page for the 2019 London Legal sponsored walk.[/p][p]Our team so far is: Salma, Bridget, Ros, Rockhaya, Kalvir, Huw, Roberta.[/p][p][b]Legal and Welfare Service (LAWS) at Freedom from Torture.[/b][/p][p]LAWS was established in recognition of the UN Committee against Torture’s affirmation that rehabilitation should be holistic and include legal services. Managed by Senior Legal Advisor Rosalyn Akar Grams; LAWS assists survivors of torture to secure access to justice and status in the UK.[/p][p]At a time of huge pressure on legal aid and welfare services, Ros and many of her team will be walking 10K in as part of the London Legal Walk to shine a spotlight on securing support for torture survivors seeking asylum in the UK. They walk alongside many other legal teams walking to provide support for the most vulnerable people in our communities. [/p][p]Our team is walking for Freedom from Torture and all funds raised through this page will be donated by LLST to Freedom from Torture without deduction.[/p][p] [b]About Freedom from Torture[/b][/p][p]Since 1985 Freedom from Torture has been the only UK human rights charity dedicated solely to the treatment and support of torture survivors who seek refuge in the UK. It does this primarily through offering psychological therapies and also forensic documentation of torture by expert doctors, practical legal and welfare support, and creative groups. Most of the charity’s income is raised through voluntary funding, including by generous donors, individual fund-raisers and local supporter groups.[/p][p]Everyone welcome!! If you are interested in walking 10K on June 17th, contact Mandy to find out more mtaylor@freedomfromtorture.org[/p][p][b]Please donate as generously as you are able[/b][/p][p][b]Many thanks for your support[/b][/p][p][i]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/i][/p]
