Who we've helped

The Citizenship Foundation

The Law Society Charity has supported us since our inception. Their support means that we can keep on providing a vibrant and fulfilling experience of learning about the law for young people.

Tony Breslin, Chief Executive of the Citizenship Foundation


The need for LawCare's support for Solicitors continues to grow, yet it would be impossible to provide all of the services LawCare offers to the profession without the assistance of the Law Society Charity.

Solicitors' Diversity Access Scheme

The Solicitors Diversity Access Scheme has given me the opportunity to achieve my ambition of becoming a qualified solicitor in a predominantly legal aid practice while struggling financially and having difficult family and social circumstances. Without the support of a scholarship to study the LPC, I would not have been able to fund my studies and be on my way to fulfilling my ambition.
