LawCare is an independent charity offering emotional support to legal professionals in the UK and Ireland through their helpline, peer support network, website, and training and talks to legal organisations. The charity raises awareness of wellbeing issues across the legal community and tackles stigma surrounding mental health.
Their free and confidential helpline is a safe place to talk without judgement, with calls answered by trained staff and volunteers who have first-hand experience of working in the law.
Whether you’re support staff feeling burnt out, a young trainee being bullied, a student struggling with the workload, an experienced partner worrying about a mistake you’ve made, a senior lawyer feeling like you’re being pushed out – LawCare is there to listen.
LawCare can help all branches of the legal profession and its support spans the legal life from student to training to practice and retirement.
As well as a helpline, the charity offers one-to-one peer support, and information, resources and factsheets at www.lawcare.org.uk
