The Cardiff Legal Walk 2021
Join us for the Cardiff Legal Walk to raise funds for free legal advice charities in Cardiff and throughout Wales and the vulnerable people they support.
This walk is a chance for the local community to walk and support access to justice. The Cardiff Legal Walk featuring its traditional route known as the incorporating the Three Courts Walk, with this year, extending the route to cover Cardiff's four courts.
Why do we walk?
The need for free legal advice centres has grown in the past few years. The recession has increased poverty and reduced support services. Meanwhile funding for the advice centres themselves has reduced.
The organisations we support:
Why should you take part?
We simply can’t overcome the effects of the huge reduction in government and local authority funding over the past few years. What we can do is to ensure that many of the people most in need get help that would otherwise have been denied.
By taking part in the Cardiff Legal Walk and seeking sponsorship from your friends, family and colleagues, you will be helping to secure vital funds needed for this important cause.
