LawCare is a registered charity and was founded in 1997. We have a Board of 10 trustees which oversees the work of a small staff team of six, and over 100 volunteers. We are completely independent of the legal professional bodies. We are funded by contributions from legal professional bodies and donations from individuals and legal practices.
LawCare’s vision is of a legal community that values, promotes and supports good mental health and wellbeing.
We support and promote good mental health and wellbeing in the legal community throughout the UK, Ireland, Isle of Man and Jersey. Our mission is to help the legal community with personal or professional concerns that may be affecting their mental health and wellbeing, and to promote understanding of how and when to seek help, without fear or stigma.
We are here to help all branches of the legal profession: solicitors, barristers, barrister’s clerks, judges, Chartered Legal Executives, paralegals, trade mark attorneys, patent agents, costs lawyers and their staff and families. Our support spans the legal life from student to training to practice and retirement.
