Support through the Court - Birmingham


Our charity helps people facing the civil and family courts alone. We have over 600 volunteers across England and Wales, and last year they provided support over 50,000 times. 

Cuts in legal aid and funding for advice agencies, mean more people than ever face court alone. People have no choice but to represent themselves at a moment that could have life-changing outcomes such as loss of access to children or homelessness. They find themselves in a legal system that was not designed for people to navigate without the help of a lawyer, desperate for somewhere to turn.  We provide a safe space, with volunteers who listen to each client’s story, help them to problem-solve and decide next steps, source reliable legal information, explain complex procedures, complete court forms, and clearly present statements. 

We can support one person at a cost of £32 to our funders. Nobody should face court alone
