The Solicitors’ Charity’s support depends upon varying factors. If your income is low because you are out of work, on shorter hours or work opportunities are reduced, we can help maximise your chances of sustaining yourself in the long-term.
If your income is below our thresholds, we may be able to provide you with financial support. Depending on your circumstances, our awards can be made for varying periods of time and are subject to regular review.
We also help with exceptional costs relating to health and wellbeing, including nursing and residential care fees as well as home adaptations or aids.
We can also refer you to a variety of services designed to help you get back into work including those geared around practical career and job search support, more information here.
We understand that debt is a challenging subject for solicitors and there are times when overwhelming debt needs serious measures. The Solicitors’ Charity can refer solicitors from across England & Wales for confidential advice on management money and personal debts, provided in strict confidence by FCA-registered advisers.
We want to make sure that applicants have applied for all the statutory benefits they are entitled to. This can be a difficult maze to navigate, especially if it’s the first time you’ve found yourself in this situation, and why we refer individuals for confidential advice on welfare benefits. This service is provided by experts at Citizens Advice Manchester (CAM).
