HOW ARE YOU FUNDED?
We provide free initial advice and then try and find volunteer lawyers and experts to help the most vulnerable in our society. Over ninety per cent of our funding comes from voluntary subscriptions, memberships and donations. Without this vital income, we could not operate.
We work on many different types of after the event funding, from conditional fee agreements, damages based agreements and a whole lot more.
In litigation cases, if we win, we recover the bulk of our costs from the other side. We also recover our costs from public funds and from insurance policies but our main objective is to provide free advice and support and recovering costs is low down on our priorities.
