Could you provide pro bono legal support to a survivor-led domestic abuse charity in Bath?
 
VOICES is a domestic abuse charity founded by survivors in Bath in 2014. Run by and for survivors, it aims to empower victims to find their voice, to recover from abuse and lead fulfilling lives again. VOICES provides recovery programmes and emotional support and advice for individuals. Survivors are encouraged to volunteer and receive skills and training where appropriate, or are supported in their personal development. Their insights inform training VOICES provides for local professionals and feedback to agencies and services.
 
The number of people we are supporting is growing, and access to legal advice can be problematic. There is no free legal advice centre for Bath. We are looking for a legal professional willing to give some time to support the charity with advice on matters relating to domestic abuse.
 
Please contact VOICES at info@voicescharity.org or via our website www.voicescharity.org.
VOICES is a registered charity, no. 1159445
