Community Fundraising

 

Fundraise for us

Support Through Court is a charity that provides assistance and support to people through our Face-to-Face Court Based services and remotely via our National Helpline. Our volunteers provide emotional and procedural help which empowers people to better access justice.

The justice system was not designed for litigants in person and by helping people access legal aid, organise their documents, understand basic court procedures, and giving emotional support, our volunteers improve the situation for everyone in court. 


COVID-19 has restricted much of our planned fundraising activities and events in 2020.
 
As the lockdown eases and we move back into working in the courts, we anticipate a huge increase in the need for our services.

The worrying levels of incidents reported by domestic abuse charities, caused by the hothouse effect of the lockdown, will lead to increased demands on the Family Courts. In the civil courts, Covid-19 and the lockdown have created a backlog of evictions, repossessions and employment claims. 

Despite the social distancing restrictions there are still plenty of fun and exciting ways to help raise money for people facing court alone.

Fundraising Ideas

Whilst COVID-19 social distance measures have restricted many traditional fundraising activities there are still plenty of ways to get involved in new activities or put a twist on some old ones!
