No solicitor unsupported in times of need or crisis

SBA The Solicitors’ Charity is an independent charity working for solicitors both past and present and their families. Every year we help hundreds of people of all ages who are in serious financial need as a result of illness, accident, redundancy or other adversity.

We determine ‘serious financial need’ by using research produced by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s ‘Minimum Income Standard’.

We provide welfare grants, support with career transition and access to advice on welfare benefits and managing personal debt.

Our work is even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are increasing our efforts and making more funding available, offering information and support to help any solicitor who is impacted by the virus. You can find out more about this work on our dedicated COVID-19 Support Hub here.

We rely on the generosity of solicitors, law firms and local law societies to be able to continue...
