Through LawCare, a UK-wide charity offering support information and a free confidential telephone helpline for legal professionals and their families, we provide access to practical help and support to legal practioners experiencing stress and ill health or facing redundancy. We also provide information for those coming back to the profession after a period of maternity or parternity leave.

Our redundancy pages provide further detailed information to those facing this stressful occurrence.

A professional and supportive listening ear is available from our free, confidential telephone helplines.
