  • “No one should feel their life is in such a state that they can’t ask for help”

  • “You know that there are people there to support you and that you are not alone”

Why do solicitors need a charity?

Have you ever wondered why solicitors need a charity? After all, legal professionals are successful, wealthy and live a stable lifestyle, right?

You’re probably shaking your head at this moment thinking, this sentiment doesn’t quite reflect reality. And you’d be right. The truth is, lawyers are vulnerable to life’s hazards like everyone else. Simply being a lawyer doesn’t shield you from illness, accidents, family breakup, job loss or bereavement and more.

With this in mind, it’s no wonder so many solicitors fall into financial hardship each year. Fortunately, there is hope for those in crisis.

SBA The Solicitors’ Charity

When you are in financial difficulty, paying for essential day-to-day items can seem impossible. Imagine having to manage the stress of having little to no income, with bills rising and still having to put food on the table. Add in illnesses, struggling to find a new job or caring for dependents and it can feel like a pot boiling over.

Luckily, solicitors don’t need to suffer alone. Lawyers like you have your very own charity to be there for you and colleagues when you are in financial difficulty.

SBA The Solicitors’ Charity supports solicitors (and their dependants) through financial assistance. This support pays for essential items most people take for granted. These include:

  • Utility bills
  • Groceries
  • Transport
  • Household repairs (leaking roofs etc)

The charity also helps with access to services for debt and welfare advice, mental health and career coaching.

How can I help?

This year, solicitors across England and Wales have given generously to SBA The Solicitors’ Charity. Through this this kindness, they have helped the charity to secure a better quality of life for individuals most in need…

The quote below comes direct from an SBA beneficiary and shows the difference made by supporters.

  • Donating your unclaimed client balances
