How we help
We offer free, confidential, emotional support, peer support, and resources to those working in the law in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man
We’ve been supporting legal professionals for over 25 years. We understand life in the law.
Our support service offers a safe place to talk without judgement. We’re here to listen, with helpline calls, emails and online chats answered in confidence by trained staff and volunteers who have first-hand experience of working in the law.
We are here to help all branches of the legal profession and our support spans the legal life from student to retirement.
Whether you’re a barrister feeling burnt out, a young trainee experiencing sexual harassment, an HR professional struggling with the workload, support staff worrying about a mistake you’ve made, a senior lawyer feeling like you’re being pushed out - we’re here to help.
Our free, independent and confidential helpline is open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm and online live chat is available on Wednesdays. We also offer a peer support programme, and an additional support fund for those that need counselling but are unable to pay for it themselves.
