Join us and make a positive impact on vulnerable people going to court. We can offer you a supportive and professional working environment with a commitment to developing your skills.
Support Through Court is an award winning charity that provides practical and emotional support to the vast numbers of people facing the civil and family courts without the help of a lawyer. We have around 750 volunteers and 49 staff based at 20 locations in England and Wales.
In June 2018, we reached the milestone of helping on 300,000 occasions. Over 75% of these occasions of support were in the period 2013-2018. This year we will help litigants-in-person on over 75,500 occasions. This reflects both the great need, resulting from changes to Legal Aid provision, and our successful expansion to date to meet more of that need.
We are currently recruiting for Trustees to replace experienced Board members who have come, or are coming, to the end of their terms of office. The Board is particularly interested in recruiting a practicing solicitor or barrister, and those with experience in finance or banking, IT systems and resources, fundraising and income generation in the voluntary sector, and marketing and strategic communication. An interest in fundraising and an understanding of the civil and family court would be useful.
