On 18th October, a team from ICSR will be taking on the London Legal Support Trust 10k London Legal Walk. Led by Kenneth Underhill, the team of walkers comprises volunteers from our full-time staff and our talent pool of consultants. We will be walking as a team and have chosen a route (River Route South) that takes in some of the key sights in and around the City that for many of us, is the backdrop to so much of our working lives. Please look out for us in our T-Shirts.
It’s our moment to pause and raise awareness of the issues that a lack of access to justice can cause. Please join us in spirit and support the work that the London Legal Trust do to raise funds for the advice agencies it supports. You can donate to our efforts by sponsoring us via our Virgin Money event page. Every penny goes directly to the London Legal Trust. All event fees for all of our walkers have been funded directly by ICSR as part of our own Corporate Social Responsibility policy.
We are grateful to the following team and talent pool members for donating their time to supporting this issue. We would also like to acknowledge the support of talent pool members based elsewhere in the United Kingdom and Channel Islands, many of whom would be with us in person if they were able to do so.

About The London Legal Support Trust
The London Legal Support Trust raises vital funds to support access to justice for those unable to fund it themselves. Between 2005 and 2018, 56% of all legal aid providers were lost, and the proportion of not-for-profit providers fell by a staggering 64% over the same period. There is little funding available for many of the problems which have a significant impact on people’s lives, such as; claiming the welfare benefits to which they are entitled; employment disputes, concerning a wide range including pay, conditions of work, harassment and bullying; immigration issues, which force people to live apart from their loved ones; discrimination in accessing goods and services; housing including homelessness advice and many disrepair cases, and community care support to give people the best possible quality of life.
About Our CSR Policy
ICSR recognises the role it can play in being a good corporate citizen. Our approach is documented in our Corporate Social Responsibility policy and visible to our staff, talent pool members, customers and wider business contacts in some of the activities we have undertaken over the years. As well as our ongoing support for the London Legal Walk, ICSR helped launch the initiative Compters4Schools.
