Why do solicitors need a charity?

sba-picture

 

 

Have you ever wondered why solicitors need a charity? After all, legal professionals are successful, wealthy and live a stable lifestyle, right?

 

You're probably shaking your head at this moment thinking, this sentiment doesn't quite reflect reality. And you'd be right. The truth is, lawyers are vulnerable to life's hazards like everyone else. Simply being a lawyer doesn't shield you from illness, accidents, family breakup, job loss or bereavement and more.

 

With this in mind, it's no wonder so many solicitors fall into financial hardship each year. Fortunately, there is hope for those in crisis.

 

SBA The Solicitors' Charity

 

When you are in financial difficulty, paying for essential day-to-day items can seem impossible. Imagine having to manage the stress of having little to no income, with bills rising and still having to put food on the table. Add in illnesses, struggling to find a new job or caring for dependants and it can feel like a pot boiling over.

 

Luckily, solicitors don’t need to suffer alone. Lawyers like you have your very own charity to be there for you and colleagues when you are in financial difficulty.

 

SBA The Solicitors' Charity supports solicitors (and their dependants) through financial assistance. This support pays for essential items most people take for granted. These include:

  • Utility bills
  • Groceries
  • Transport
  • Household repairs (leaking roofs etc)

The charity also helps with access to services for debt and welfare advice, mental health and career coaching.

 

How can I help?

 

Last year, Devon and Somerset Law Society gave £1,750.00 to SBA The Solicitors' Charity. Through this kindness, you and members helped the charity to secure a better quality of life for individuals most in need in the South West.

 

The quote below comes direct from an SBA beneficiary and shows the difference made by supporters like Devon and Somerset Law Society.

 

“SBA has made a massive difference in my life. I cannot thank you enough for the confidence and security that your help has given me”

 

On top of the help already provided, there are more ways for you to support positive changes for those in crisis. These include:

  • Donating money yourself or via your firm
  • Donating your unclaimed client balances
  • Telling your colleagues about SBA The Solicitors' Charity and how it helps solicitors

Fancy going the extra mile for your colleagues?

 

We can together make an impact and turn the lives around for solicitors in need or crisis. Visit the SBA The Solicitors' Charity website for further details:  www.sba.org.uk
