London Legal Support Trust’s core aim is to ensure free legal advice providers in London and the South East continue to exist so that they can provide vital and life-changing legal advice to people who otherwise would not afford to access or defend their rights.
Access to justice is a fundamental right. Without it, people are at risk in almost every aspect of their lives, from employment to housing and everything in between. We exist to ensure that everyone has access to appropriate legal support when they most need it – and that lack of financial means is not a barrier.
Our partners, the legal advice centres, provide services to help thousands of people every year to access justice and have their voices heard.
- We support law centres and other legal advice agencies in London and the Home Counties by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support.
- We offer our knowledge and experience in the sector to help the agencies become more sustainable.
- We also work in partnership with other grant-making bodies. During COVID 19, we have been working with over 60 funders through London Emergency Response to get vital funds out to the charities and civil society organisations to help people that face challenges such as lack of food, isolation, debt, homelessness, domestic violence and mental health.
We raise funds for all of this work predominantly through mass participation fundraising events, most notably the London Legal Walk, which is the biggest event fundraiser in the legal calendar.
About the role
We are recruiting a Communications and Marketing Manager to develop and implement the charity’s communications strategy.
The post will work closely with senior staff to manage internal and external communications and marketing campaigns to raise the profile of the charity, our events and our giving campaigns to engage new audiences and existing stakeholders.
This is an exciting time to join the team as we have recently invested in diversifying our fundraising, and we know that to be successful, we must raise our profile in the legal community and beyond.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
