Team story

[p]Thank you for visiting Team JRS UK's fundraising page for the [url=http://www.londonlegalsupporttrust.org.uk/]London Legal Support Trust’s[/url] 2020 London legal sponsored walk.[/p][p]We're taking on 10K for justice on the 5th October and hoping to raise £10K too![/p][p]Despite the postponement of the London Legal Walk due to COVID-19, many of us will still be marking 8th June with a virtual [url=https://www.londonlegalsupporttrust.org.uk/our-events/london-legal-walk-2020/10,000-steps-for-justice/]10,000 Steps for Justice[/url], before coming together in solidarity and support for frontline free legal advice services at the main walk in October. The virus is creating an urgent and unprecedented need for advice agency services and it is vital that they continue to receive funding during this difficult period.[/p][p]JRS UK began a Legal Project to provide legal support to those we serve in 2019. [/p][p]Those we serve have been let down by an unjust system. They have come here seeking refuge and wanting to rebuild their lives, but found the system for determining their claims is stacked against them.[/p][p]There is inadequate legal support to navigate this very complicated system. Like most legal systems, it isn’t easy to understand without legal training, and there are hoops you have to jump through, so a good lawyer is really important.[/p][p]This is an important part of our service to destitute refugees who are struggling to gain recognition in the UK. [/p][p]We are walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers to raise funds for [url=https://www.jrsuk.net/]Jesuit Refugee Service[/url].[/p][p]Jesuit Refugee Service is an international Catholic organisation, at work in over 50 countries around the world with a mission to accompany, serve and advocate for the rights of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons.[/p][p][b]Please sponsor our walkers as generously as you are able.[/b][/p][p][b]Many thanks for your support![/b][/p]
