Make a Donation

"Knowing we were properly represented has enabled us to be more at peace as a family."

The Bar Pro Bono Unit is an independent charity which relies on donations to meet all its running costs. We are very grateful to all those sets of Chambers, organisations and individuals who already help us.

Donations made on a regular committed basis (for example by standing order) are particularly appreciated, as they allow us to plan properly for the future. When a Gift Aid declaration is completed, at no additional cost to yourself, we can receive an extra 25p for every pound that you give e.g. a donation of £100 is worth £125.

To request a standing order form please email

A regular or one off donation however small is gratefully received and will enable us to continue to offer pro bono legal assistance.

  • £5 a month helps towards the costs of essential office supplies and thereby to ensure that our office remains functioning to assist vulnerable applicants.
  • £25 a month helps to provide ongoing website and IT support allowing us to connect to members of the public, providing essential information to those in need.
  • £50 a month helps towards the cost of employing five permanent Unit caseworkers essential for the efficient processing of over 1300 applications for help received annually.
