Free Representation Unit

We train law students and young lawyers to provide free representation at tribunals

Charity Registration No. 295952

Story

I really hope you can help me to support this charity which is very close to my heart.

The FRU provide free representation in social security and employment tribunals to people who are not eligible for legal aid and cannot afford lawyers. 

I recently supported my partner through an employment tribunal. He was sacked by his employer because of his courage to speak up about serious failings in the health and social care system which included his past work as an undercover reporter for Channel 4 dispatches exposing the flawed PIP assessments of which a majority are overturned at appeal. FRU supports many Claimants with these appeals. 

Thankfully he secured Pro bono legal support, without which he would not have been able to navigate the complex legal systems despite the clear discrimination which was obvious in his case. 

Therefore I know first hand the importance of good legal support and the essential work of the FRU for people who cannot afford this and hope you can help me by donating whatever you can; no amount is too small. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
