Hastings Legal Walk 2018

Add Heading (6)

The 2018 Hastings Legal Walk will be on September 17th starting at 5.00.p m.

The 2017 walk raised over £4,000 for Hastings' advice agencies:- Citizens Advice 1066, Hastings Advice and Representation Centre and the Hastings branch of Brighton Housing Trust.

Walkers in the 2018 walk will hope to beat that great total.   

Bob Nightingale, commended the lawyers for supporting local advice agencies saying: -  

 "Since the first walk, life has become even harder for the most disadvantaged people. Austerity has caused hardship among the poorest people and created problems such as debt and homelessness. Often the advice agencies are the only place where those people can get help. Now changes to the benefits rules for people with disabilities is creating even more pressure on the advice agencies.

"2013 cuts to legal aid for many areas of welfare law mean that people who can't afford t pay a solicitor can no longer turn to high street solicitors for help with matters such as benefits, employment or disrepair.

It's fantastic that local lawyers will turn out year after year to raise funds to help to ease that problem,"

The advice agencies  work together in the Hastings Advice Hub to help thousands of people every year. Some of the work the walk supports at the Hastings Hub includes:

BHT prevented 302 people and families from becoming homeless in the past year and

secured a total of £2,042,452.56 in benefits for those affected by Cancer.
HARC secured a total of £4,901,879.29 in previously unclaimed benefits.

Of which £2,197,988.14 was disability benefits.
MoneyAdvice (Citizens Advice 1066) have helped over 16,500 people in the past year and dealt with over £5,600,000.00 of debt
