National Advice Funders Network
The National Advice Funders Network is made up of:
- independent grant making trusts with a commitment to supporting the not-for-profit legal advice sector, and
- law firms that assist the not-for-profit legal advice sector through providing funding and pro bono support.
Members of the network share a commitment to ensuring access to justice for vulnerable people. They have come together through a shared desire to support an effective, independent not-for-profit legal advice sector that is viable, high quality, able to provide value for money and that is able to make the voices of vulnerable people heard.

The advice funders network is for any trust or foundation which funds advice agencies or is interested in finding out more about the role that legal advice can play in achieving a wider range of social objectives. The network meets quarterly online to update each other on relevant grant programmes, share learning and identify opportunities to work together.
For an informal chat about the network or to sign up, please email Clare Carter at the Access to Justice Foundation.
"We’re very keen to welcome funders who are just interested in learning more about advice and the role it plays in resolving a range of social justice issues."
Clare Carter, Deputy CEO, Access to Justice Foundation
