Greater Manchester Law Centre

We give free legal advice and are here to fight for free access to justice.

Charity Registration No. 1170317

Story

The welfare benefits system in the UK is completely broken, leaving some of the most vulnerable people in society homeless & destitute; in many cases left to die.

Greater Manchester Law Centre (GMLC) like many charities of its kind, provides free access to justice by advising, supporting & representing the most vulnerable through the benefits application & appeals system, to get their entitlement, to arm them with their rights & provide them with the legal advice required to bring them out of poverty & be able to build a better future. Unfortunately, like most charities, any state funding they receive is reduced year on year & they rely on donations to keep going.

It's an incredibly important cause - by supporting people in this way it helps to build a better society for all of us and it strengthens our local economies by way of improving individuals' financial circumstances.

They have recouped over half a million for clients since they opened in 2016. Any money donated goes towards the resources to be able to do this such as training volunteers; providing staff to complete benefit applications & representation at appeals.

I am running the 10k GM run on Sunday 20th May to raise money for this cause. Please take the time to sponsor me. I know money is tight for most people so any little amount will help.

Thank you so much xx
