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
