The Birmingham Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk around Birmingham to raise money for local advice services. Staff, trustees & volunteers are walking to raise funds for ASIRT which provides advice and free legal support to some of the most vulnerable in our community. Please join us on the walk, &/or sponsor us & join the team for a well deserved free drink at the end!
The need for free legal advice centres has grown in the past few years. The recession has increased poverty and reduced support services, whilst funding for the advice centres themselves has reduced. We know from our own experience how valuable the work of legal advice charities is for disadvantaged people. Advice agencies do a fantastic job in preventing homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly and disabled and fighting exploitation.
However, we are also short of the funds to continue this work.
The money we raise will help keep our agency operating and try to ensure our services are as effective as possible.
