All solicitors supported in times of need or crisis

The Solicitors’ Charity is a charity working for solicitors both past and present and their families. Every year we help hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds who are unable to support themselves financially, due to ill health, life-changing disabilities, unemployment, low or no income, family crisis or older age.

During the COVID-19 pandemic and in its aftermath, we are making more funds available, widening the support we provide and offering information and support to help any solicitor who is impacted by the virus. Find out more on our COVID-19 Support Hub.

We provide welfare grants and other support grants, assistance with getting back in to work and access to advice on welfare benefits and managing personal debt. We also work closely with partners who can provide emotional well-being support and regulatory and legal advice.

Our baseline for eligibility is the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s ‘Minimum Income Standard.
