My story

[p][url=http://www.lawforlife.org.uk/]Law for Life[/url]'s team: [b]Mihaela Rosca, Lisa Wintersteiger, Mary Marvel, Lucy Grey, Anta Brachou, [/b]are doing the 10K London legal walk to raise money to enable us to expand our work with Hibisicus Initiatives and their clients. [url=http://hibiscusinitiatives.org.uk/]Hibiscus Initiatives[/url] has a range of projects supporting foreign national and black, minority ethnic and refugee (BMER) women in custody, in detention and the community. [/p][p]Last year, we used money raised from our Legal Walk to develop a public legal education programme to improve legal capability and access to justice for the clients of the [url=http://hibiscusinitiatives.org.uk/index.php/project/community-resettlement/]Hibiscus Initiative Resettlement Hub[/url]. We delivered four consecutive training sessions which covered some of the basic legal concepts such as: the distinction between civil and criminal law, civil/criminal courts structure and important skills needed to deal with law-related problems. In addition, we addressed more specific issues which are relevant for this client group, such as roles of immigration solicitors and barristers, what is covered by legal aid in immigration cases, and gathering documents to build your own case.[/p][p][b][i]“Wow...this workshop was an eye opener to me, I learnt something new; thanks for organising it!”[/i][/b] - training participant[/p][p]We would like to develop this work and deliver training for Hibiscus Initiatives’ clients in prisons and detention centres. [/p][p]Our team is fundraising for [url=http://www.lawforlife.org.uk/]Law for Life: the Foundation for Public Legal Education[/url] and [b]all funds received by LLST from this page will be donated to Law for life without deduction[/b].[/p][p]Law for Life: the Foundation for Public Legal Education is an education and information charity that aims to provide everyone with an awareness of their legal rights together with the confidence and skills to assert them. We have the expertise, the practical experience, and the tools to work with any organisaiton that wants to help their users recognise and deal with law-related issues better.[/p][p]As a charity we are reliant on the generosity of those who fund us as well the goodwill of our volunteers.[/p][p]Please donate as generously as you are able. Every penny you give will make a real contribution to the service we offer the public.[/p][p]Many thanks for your support![/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.
