Our helpline is open Monday-Friday 9:30am to 4:30pm. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we are experiencing a high number of calls. Please be patient if you are contacting the Helpline for support.

Like many other charities, we will face great uncertainty over the next coming months as funding becomes more difficult. If you are able to, please consider donating to Support Through Court to ensure we can continue assisting clients via phone during this challenging time and in person again in the future.

What we do

Every year, thousands of people in the UK face court alone. Without help, they have to represent themselves while they go through a divorce, seek custody of their children, or face eviction from their home. They are forced to navigate a complex legal system alone, often against the professional legal representation of the other party.

The increase in cuts to legal aid over recent years has meant that thousands more people face the civil or family courts alone. Their access to justice is limited by how overwhelming the legal system can be to those who have never faced it before, and many struggle to represent themselves effectively in court.

Our 750 volunteers provide a free service across England and Wales, offering support and guidance before, during, and after court. We ensure that those facing court alone feel prepared and supported in accessing justice.
