The Simpson Millar Liverpool office have teamed up with other legal charities, firms and associations to support and raise funds for The Access To Justice Foundation and The North West Legal Support Trust (‘NWLST’).
We will be taking part on a sponsored 5km walk around Liverpool City on Tuesday 21 September 2021.
We recognise the ongoing need to increase the support available to vulnerable members of our society in gaining access to justice.
Simpson Millar know that any donations will be gratefully received by the organisations the NWLST support, in that they strive to
- Prevent families being made homeless
- Prevent destitution
- Help older people gain the support to which they are entitled
- Help women and children who have been trafficked for domestic servitude or prostitution.
We are proud to support and raise funds for the most vulnerable in our society because one of the most important foundations of our legal system has been that all members of society should have access to the courts and legal services.
Justice is not just for the wealthy.
We believe that every donation helps, no matter how small.
The Access to Justice Foundation state
"We believe everyone should have access to justice, yet two thirds of the UK population don’t know how to get legal advice and there are still 14 million people who live in poverty and can’t afford it.
"A lack of access to justice leads to issues of poverty, homelessness, ill health, unemployment, broken households, and many other social and personal difficulties."
