LawCare provides the opportunity for extra emotional support to its support contacts via its Additional Support Fund (ASF).  If you believe you would benefit from therapeutic support via counselling or therapy, please contact LawCare in total confidence for further information. Please note that this fund is not intended for those with chronic conditions such as dependency or mental illness where support is already being provided by health and /or social care agencies, or, where inpatient treatment is needed.
To be considered for the fund, you will need to speak with a member of the LawCare team and complete a short form relating to your personal/financial circumstances which will then be considered for eligibility. To find out if you might be eligible please email support@lawcare.org.uk for further details. 

LawCare will fund such support up to a threshold of £500, limited to one application per contact.  Members of the legal profession/s and support staff in any of the jurisdictions covered by LawCare may apply.
