LYLG is a proud supporter of LawWorks (www.lawworks.org.uk), a charity committed to enabling access to justice through free legal advice.
What is LawWorks?
LawWorks is a charity which aims to provide free legal help to individuals and community groups who cannot afford to pay for it and who are unable to access legal aid. In the last year LawWorks helped provide free legal advice to over 40,000 people and around 350 voluntary sector organisations.
We work with just under 100 member law firms and teams of in-house counsel, as well as mediators, law students and solicitors who have been made redundant (see the Choices project), involving them all in pro bono work.
LawWorks is the operating name of the Solicitors Pro Bono Group.
There are lots of ways to get involved
- If your organisation is a LawWorks member, your pro bono coordinator will have information about LawWorks programmes your organisation is involved in
- Find out about pro bono opportunities across the country in our pro bono opportunities listing

The LYLG are also proud to work with Gutsy Gastros (No. 1158657) a charity dedicated to helping children with life-threatening chronic bowel, intestinal and gastric disorders.
Take part in the raffle draws during our events to win fantastic prizes and help us raise funds to purchase specialised equipment including intravenous pumps, wheelchairs and dry suits so that they can go swimming.
All funds raised assist children to be cared for at home rather than in hospital and in cases where life expectancy is limited, making sure that every day is the best day ever.
