The London Legal Support Trust works to support law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the South East by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support by holding large fundraising events. The Trust offers knowledge and experience of the sector to help the agencies to become more sustainable and help to partner them with law firms and chambers who share a commitment to ensuring that the law is fair. They are part of a network of seven Legal Support Trusts across England and in Wales working with the Access to Justice Foundation to support pro bono and advice agencies, ensuring funds can be distributed where needed most throughout England and Wales.
