Join us for the Reading Legal Walk and give a lifeline to refugees in Berkshire.

The Reading Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk to raise money for our free legal advice services for refugees in crisis across Berkshire.

This year we’ve provided more than 800 refugees with thousands of hours of free legal advice and practical help that they cannot access elsewhere.

That’s over 460% more than the previous year, and demand continues to soar with refugees in crisis continuing to arrive from Ukraine, Afghanistan and other parts of the world.

Our Advice Service depends entirely on public donations, so please help us fund this vital service that so many people depend on.

Please join us on Wednesday 21st September for the Reading Legal Walk and help give a lifeline to refugees facing crisis in Berkshire.

Join us. Walk 10km. Give a lifeline to refugees in Berkshire.
