Reshaping our service

Support Through Court is reshaping the way we work to ensure clients receive the best help possible. we will continue providing practical support and information in areas where we are effective. However, when clients would benefit from help elsewhere, such as when legal advice or specialist information is needed, we will let clients know we are unable to help. For more information on what we are able and unable to provide support on, please read here. 

Request an appointment for support

If you need support, you can request an appointment and we'll get back to you. We'll be offering both face-to-face and remote appointments. Please check each local service for more details.


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, defend or put forward a personal injury claim 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. We offer support and guidance before, during, and after court. We ensure that those facing court alone feel prepared and supported in accessing justice. 

Over the next five years we've got big plans to help even more people facing court without representation. We’ll use technology to connect with more people, in more places, more cost effectively. We'll invest in recruiting and training more volunteers to empower people dealing with the stressful navigation of the court process. And we’ll continue to ensure that clients are at the heart of all we do, so they know they’re not alone.
