Alexander & Co join the Derby 2021 Legal Walk

Published: 1 June 2021

Alexander & Co have signed up to the Derby Legal Walk on Monday 21 June 2021.

The Walk is organised by the Midland Legal Support Trust, together with the Derby and District Law Society.  It will see local legal professionals walking to raise funds for access to free legal advice services.

Why are we Walking?

The need for access to free legal advice has grown in the last few years.  The impact of recession, combined with the COVID-19 crisis has seen an increase in poverty, and a reduction in legal support.

Legal advice centres have reported a huge increase in demand for advice from those unable to afford the help.  Combined with staffing issues, and severe financial problems stemming from the pandemic, without our help, this could lead to centres closing, and further reductions in legal advice as a result.

How can you help?

The money that we raise will help fund vital legal advice services in Derby, helping to provide advice on housing, familial issues, employment, and domestic abuse to those who cannot afford it.  The legal advice that these centres provide are essential for the vulnerable people of our community, who have no other way of accessing the legal help that they need.

We would be grateful for your support by way of financial donation if you can.  Anything that you can provide would be a massive step towards our goal, and would be hugely appreciated.
