Small Grants

LLST now have a designated small grants round for grants up to £5,000. We plan to give about 10 - 15% of our grants pot away through this strand (in 2018 about £120,000).

Any charitable organisation that provides free legal advice (including pro bono) to people living in London and some home counties can apply for this under one of the following priorities:

  1. Form 1 - Supporting new pro bono surgeries/legal advice services   
  2. Form 2 - Keeping the doors open of pro bono surgeries/legal advice services  that need time to regain sustainability
  3. Form 3 - One off capital costs, particularly associated with capacity building or improving sustainability (i.e. reducing costs, increasing efficiency through new systems, technology or moving/altering premises).
  4. Form 4 - Development of legal advice agencies where none currently exist

Deadlines for Small Grant Applications in 2019 are:

Sunday 10th February before midnight 
Sunday 9th June before midnight
