10,000 Steps for Justice

Thank you to the 3,700 walkers, joggers, jugglers and roller skaters who took on 10,000 Steps for Justice on Monday 8th June. Together you have raised over £230,000 for frontline free legal advice services!

The below is for information purposes for those who are yet to undertake their 10,000 Steps for Justice challenge.

Despite the postponement of the London Legal Walk, we are still marking 8th June with '10,000 Steps for Justice' before coming together in solidarity and support for free frontline legal advice services on the 5th October.

10,000 Steps for Justice is a virtual event, giving you and your team the flexibility to take part in the comfort of your living room, in a local park or on your lunch break*.

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, there will be a significant rise in Emergency Funding applications from advice agencies as they deal with the ongoing situation. Fundraising for free legal advice services is therefore more critical than ever if agencies are to continue doing such a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly, and fighting discrimination and exploitation.

10,000 steps for justice will be a great opportunity to engage your family and colleagues in this vital cause, wherever you are working from. But we also hope that it will re-ignite a strong sense of community across the legal sector as the country continues to go through this difficult period of isolation.
