Support The Big Give Christmas Challenge!

Please support LawCare’s Christmas fundraising appeal, The Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest matched fundraising campaign.

LawCare has been providing emotional support to the legal community since 1997 and its recent study on legal mental health in the UK shows that legal professionals are under strain and at significant risk of burnout.  Living and working during the pandemic has also had an impact on mental wellbeing with 59% of respondents indicating they were worried about the additional pressures on their work life balance.  Your donations help to provide much needed support to legal professionals.   

  • £25 can help train a helpline volunteer
  • £40 provides emotional support to one legal professional in need
  • £50 pays for a one hour counselling session
  • £120 provides ongoing peer support to a legal professional in need

If you donate before 12:00pm tomorrow, 7 December, your donation will be doubled from a matched pot of funding that LawCare has already secured.
